One of the most successful independent releases ever in McKennitt's native Canada, the self-produced 1989 album Parallel Dreams is also her first recording to feature the artist's own lyrical contributions. From the poignant traditional ballad ''Annachie Gordon'' to the fiery Native American/Celtic fusion of ''Huron 'Beltane' Fire Dance'' to the evocative tale of a child's yearning for home in ''Dickens' Dublin (The Palace)'', Loreena's third recording shows a marked evolution beyond the realm of traditional Celtic music and heads down the road on an eclectic musical journey.
