One of my favourite poems & my favourite Loreena song (I think it one of the first I'd heard from her). Lovely. ��

This was one of the song I first heard from Loreena that convinced me I was hooked on her style.

Wow, she never fails to enthrall me, forever I will know of the Lady of Shalott

She does such a beautiful job putting this poem to music! I once memorized the whole poem. I think it was 6 pages or something.

I absolutely love this sweet, gentle Irish melody-+-- mournful & teary-eyed, It's defiantly worth taking a shot at hearing this classic whenever there is ss

One of my favorites. She has a real talent for taking classical poems and transferring them into wonderful songs.

Geryth, the song doesn't even include all the stanzas in the poem.

This song is longer than Weird Al's Albuquerque. That's impressive.

Wow! This song made me cry! :O

Whoever likes this song should check out the painting The Lady of Shallot by JW Waterhouse. It captures the poem perfectly with all its profound emotions. Like this song, a beautiful piece of art!

I'd love to hear Loreena live! Too bad her summer tour is not coming to a city near me. The Stolen Child is one of favorites; it's so haunting and emotional with beautiful lyrics.

Try stolen child or highway man, loreena is my fav songstress & has such a tragic life herself.

I read this poem in my British Lit class. I heard this song a few times before I really listened to it and realized it was the poem I had read. It was fascinating to read it and even more so to hear it put to music.

I wish I knew the story behind this better... Thank you, Loreena. This song is traumatizing l y beautiful. I'm planning to recite this for a talent show.

Absolutely beautiful! Saw Loreena live in Colorado Springs in a wonderrful concert hall and she was incredible! The best concert performance I've ever seen in over 40 years, and Loreena included this piece - so beautiful and flawless. Loreena is an amazing woman, historian, songwriter and performer with a remarkably beautiful voice! What a wonderful blessing she is!

very nice song......i love her voice......

Loreena's absolutely amazing! Saw her in concert in Ann Arbor at the Michigan Theater, a relatively small venue. It was probably the best live performance I've ever attended ... mesmerizing. In the middle of the concert, she stopped to give us a history lesson of the Celtic people. That only added to what was a special evening!

Always loved this song, and the poem itself.

Stephanie, Yeah.Makes me think of it too.The scene where Anne of Green Gables,with a flare for the dramatic,flo a t s on her back and alludes to The Lady of Shalott.I could explain my spin on the poem but it takes up a whole page of writing.The poem is an amazing piece of genius because it was intended to be interpreted on many levels. The Pre Raphaelite painting of her in her boat, by Waterhouse is like the song as well as the poem. The model, wears a thousand emotions on her face. Poignant.

This song always makes me think of Anne of Green Gables.

Loreena is by far ,the best talent I have found in a long time. I don't believe in angels ,but if I did,this is what they would sound like.

The poem this song is based on is so beautiful, and Loreena Mckennitt makes it sound so wonderful. This is overall the most touching songs I have ever listened too.
