Posted on YouTube by Angel Volandoconalas (“Angel Flying with Wings”) This is a concert by an evocative artist set in the Palace of Charles V on the grounds of the Alhambra in Granada. Loreena McKennitt seems ideally suited to present her art and sensitivity on summer nights in the Alhambra.
The production is executed with deceptively simple stagecraft, consummate musicianship with an exceptional selection of instruments, including an electric violin and cello as well as the singer herself on harp and accordian. McKinnitt’s original compositions skillfully mix Celtic and Mediterranean roots in the creation of this understated masterpiece of a concert, a benchmark of musical purity and humility.
