One of my favorite songs of hers, although Highwayman takes first place. This is probably second.

Loreena is such a remarkably gifted writer, instrumental i s t and singer! Her beautiful voice and words resonate within my Celtic heart and spirit.

This is a geat song but I don't like the electric guitar in it. It just seems out of place and doesn't really fit Loreena's style. Perhaps it was because she was performing it live but there are lots of great songs on this album that don't use the guitar.

Loreena has a perfect voice and her guitarist has an excelent tone.

I think this is the version where she sings *The youngest pushed the youngest in* instead of *The eldest pushed the youngest in...*

I would add Joni Mitchell as 3rd to the list of female voices with crystalline purity ddustin4 :-)

I love how guitars are being introduced into new age songs.

To my mind, there are two female voices today possessed of a crystalline purity. EmmyLou Harris has one. Loreena McKennitt has the other.

The other version of this song on the "Mask and Mirror" tells more of the story, and this version is good, but the full story is better.

The version that plays with the "Mask and Mirror" album cover pictured is actually off a live album--the instrumentat i o n is different than on M&M, and there is applause at the end.
