Format: Audio CD
There are at least two versions of this DVD/CD on Amazon - not sure what the differences are.

I reviewed the other version nearly four weeks before its release in the UK, because having seen Loreena McKennitt in her only UK concert at London's Barbican Theatre on 3 April - a magnificent evening - I bought a copy of the CD/DVD from her sales kiosk.

The concert was recorded in September 2006 at the Alhambra palace in Granada. It must be said that Loreena's music melds beautifully with the backdrop of the palace and whoever had the idea for the concert here was truly inspired.

There are 18 tracks on the album - the 2 CDs - and the order is the same for the DVD. There is a commentary by Loreena at intervals throughout the concert and you get a real understanding of how her mind works, in putting together the historical images which shape her albums; each album being a history lesson and a travelogue for her research which culminates in her marvellous albums.

There are tracks from all her studio albums:

* Penelope's Song", "Caravanserai" and "Never-Ending Road (Amhran Duit)" are all from "An Ancient Muse", the brilliant new album;

* "The Mystic's Dream", "The Bonny Swans" and "Santiago" are from "The Mark And Mirror";

* "She Moved Through The Fair" and "Stolen Child" are from "Elemental";

* "The Mummer's Dance", "Marco Polo" and "Dante's Prayer" are from "The Book Of Secrets";

* "Bonny Portmore", "All Souls Night", an abbreviated version of "The Lady Of Shalott", "The Old Ways" and "Cymbeline" are all from "The Visit"; and

* "Huron 'Beltane' Fire Dance" is from "Parallel Dreams".

Finally, there is a wonderful version of "Raglan Road, the poem written by Patrick Kavanagh.

The reason why I am reviewing this nearly four weeks before its release in the UK is that I saw Loreena McKennitt in her only UK concert at London's Barbican Theatre on 3 April. After a magnificent evening, I bought a copy of the CD/DVD set for £25 at the tour sales stand. Paying the extra £3:51 cost for having the set for an extra 4½ months is money well spent.

The concert was recorded in September 2006 at the Alhambra palace in Granada. It must be said that Loreena's music melds beautifully with the backdrop of the palace and whoever had the idea for the concert here was truly inspired.

There are 18 tracks on the album - the 2 CDs - and the order is the same for the DVD. There is a commentary by Loreena at intervals throughout the concert and you get a real understanding of how her mind works, in putting together the historical images which shape her albums; each album being a history lesson and a travelogue for her research which culminates in her marvellous albums.

Loreena's voice and the gifted musicians with her, makes me wish I had been there in person. But the recording is a fine substitute. If you already own most of the albums you will still want this. I have to say, the live recording and additional instruments add a wonderful new feel to what are already great tracks on their respective albums. Like another reviewer, I'm on to my 14-15th viewing in just the last few weeks. It is a great introduction for those new to Loreena Mckennitt, with a fine sample of her work. I love it!

The DVD and CDs each contain the same concert in the Alhambra in Spain. Both the show and the film of it are superb. It's fascinating to see the effortless control with which Loreena lifts her voice from husky recitation to high skirling purity. The musicianship on display, including hers, is top-notch.

So: it's beautiful songs in a beautiful voice with beautiful music in a beautiful setting. With the whole thing on CD too (minus the talky bits), this is a wonderful and welcome bargain!

When I first heard the CD's it was readily apparent that the instrumental accompaniment was much richer. But Loreena's voice is just as dazzlingly beautiful and enchanting as ever.

However, when I watched the DVD - I was absolutely blown away!

The interaction of all on stage is phenomenal. You can see and feel the energy riding the musical currents that were created that night.

It is an awesome DVD and any who have only heard the CDs - I emphatically encourage you to get and watch/listen to the DVD.

Totally amazing!
