    Masterful

    With this one, Ms. McKennitt returns to her roots. And it works wonderfully. This is, quite possibly, her best one yet. It was a wonderful listen. You know you're listening to something special from the very first sound on "As I roved out." It just draws you right in from the start. "On a bright May morning" has a soulful quality that is simply sublime. "Brian Bough's march" reminds you, initially, of "The stolen child", but it has a quality all its own. "Down by the Sally gardens" is utterly beautiful, while "Star of the country down" is without a doubt the most dancable and exciting song. Meanwhile, "The wind that shakes the barley", for which the album is named, is a haunting, rather mystical song. "The death of Queen Jane" will remind you of the Lord of the Rings' music, and is very beautiful and elegant. "The emmigration tunes" suggests with sadness what might have been. And finally, "The parting glass," which is like nothing I've ever heard from Ms. McKennitt before.

    This cd is fantastic, and I was very glad I had the opportunity to buy it. It was well worth it. It certainly qualifies as one of her best works. Enjoy.
