Parallel Dreams1989, Studio Album. To Drive The Cold Winter Away1987, Seasonal Recording. Elemental1985, Studio Album. Loreena’s second, self-produced recording presents seasonal music with a fresh and serendipitous approach. This collection of traditional and lesser-known winter and Christmas carols was recorded in 1987 on location at The Church Of Our Lady in Guelph, Ontario, and, in Ireland, a Benedictine monastery and The Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annaghmakerrig. As a child, my most vivid impression of music for the winter season came from songs and carols recorded in churches or great halls, rich with their own unique ambience and tradition.

SNOW (5:35) Music by Loreena McKennitt, lyrics by Archibald Lampman. White are the far-off plains, and white The fading forests grow; The wind dies out along the height And denser still the snow, A gathering weight on roof and tree Falls down scarce audibly. Then all is silent and the snow falls Settling soft and slow The evening deepens and the grey Folds closer earth and sky The world seems shrouded, far away. Its noises sleep, and I as secret as Yon buried stream plod dumbly on and dream. THE WEXFORD CAROL (6:07) Traditional Irish.

Loreena McKennitt Format: Audio Cassette. To Drive The Cold Winter Away. Some of the best songs include In Praise of Christmas/To Drive the Cold Winter Away, Snow, and Let all that are to Mirth Inclined, the last of which will send chills down your spine as you listen to McKennit sing with haunting church bells tolling in the background as the only accompaniment. The tone is somewhat severe and the accompanying instrumentals are spare but beautiful.

Recorded in various halls and abbeys in Ireland, and completed in the Church of Our Lady in Guelph, Ontario, alist Loreena McKennitt's first foray into the crowded field of holiday music - she would go on to release an EP called Winter Garden in 1995 - is steeped in old-world atmosphere. To Drive the Cold Winter Away celebrates the winter solstice through eight traditional English, Scottish, and Irish carols and ballads and two Mckennitt originals
