Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on

There are visions, there are memories
There are echoes of thundering hooves
There are fires, there is laughter
There's the sound of a thousand doves

Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on

In the velvet of the darkness
By the silhouette of silent trees
They are watching, they are waiting
They are witnessing life's mysteries

Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on

Cascading stars on the slumbering hills
They are dancing as far as the sea
Riding o'er the land, you can feel it's gentle hand
Leading on to it's destiny

Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on

Take me with you on this journey
Where the boundaries of time are now tossed
In cathedrals of the forest
In the words of the tongues now lost

Find the answers, ask the questions
Find the roots of an ancient tree
Take me dancing, take me singing
I'll ride on till the moon meets the sea

Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on

Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on

Never been east of Ankara, but I may have to rethink if this iswhat it sounds like.
2nd thoughts perhaps not just now. 
Love anything Loreena. Such a gifted storyteller. Please play more, Bill!

That is exactly what I was going to write so I will simply agree...
Great live, another Canadian treasure. her violinist used to play with Bruce Cockburn way back in the 80s and is superb. The whole band is great actually
Excellent Seque from Leonard Cohen's "Who By Fire"
Beautiful voice and tune. She has an amazing voice. We saw her in concert back in April in London and she was superb.
The Caucasus is a mountain range/region in central Asia, from which the racial category "Caucasian" is derived.

Blah, I'm indifferent to this genre of music.  Just not a fan of Celtic.  Not uplifting enough.  Sorry!

Just sitting listening to the music with my wife, this came on and has blown me away.

Feel the need to download on to the Ipod.

Great music as always thanks

Nice! Heard her last year in Victoria. The texture in her music is amazing live!!
 
Hear Hear, Felix!!! I had seen her at Radio City Music Hall a few years back. Incredible Show!!! People were so rapt with attention that you could hear a pin drop. Hauntingly. Beautiful. Music.

... and true that it doesn't suit everyone's taste. 

Sweet Loreena Modern ...

This music has a time and a place for me to listen  as well .. i would have to be dead and and i would surely be in in hell.
