I went out and bought my favorite Celtic artist Loreena McKennitt's new cd!!! I have been waiting people for this cd since 1999!!! I can not even begin to describe what the music and her voice does. She has an amazingly powerful voice. The music is inspirational, the words are poetry, the voice is astounding!!! I got an email back in April from the website of hers...yes, lol, I am part of her fanclub. I was sent a beautiful ecard that you also can view by going to her website Loreena McKennitt. The name of her latest cd is "An Ancient Muse". Need I say more. Many of you who know me....well the title say's it all. This cd has been in the works for about 8 years now. The final product...!!!!...My gosh, for me, well worth the wait. I have played this over and over, I may have already worn out the cd. Anyone out there looking for a Christmas gift idea? This is it. I highly recomend any of her cd's because I have almost all of them. I suggest these cd's, "The Visit", "The Mask And Mirror","The Book Of Secrets" and of course her "Live In Paris". HELLO!!!!!! The live one is a combination of the best songs off all the cd's I named. Go to the website and view ecard 1 . That is what I was sent and this one in particular prepares you for the whole cd experience. Go buy it and enjoy it. Get to know Loreena and her voice, and what she stands for. I promise you will not be disappointed.

In Flanders Fields By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918) Canadian Army
IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow Between the crosses row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.
...For all of us who knew those from the past who fought for us, those that are there now, fighting for freedom and peace, and those we know now who will go in the future. God Bless you and keep you safe.
