Under A Winter's Moon features 15 seasonal songs performed by Loreena, interspersed with seasonal readings by Canadian Indigenous actor and Companion of the Order of Canada, Tom Jackson, Gemini Award-winning actor Cedric Smith and Ojibway artist and flutist Jeffrey "Red" George.

Loreena McKennitt’s Under A Winter’s Moon was recorded live during a series of seasonal concerts in a historic church sanctuary around the time of the solstice in December 2021. The two-disc package features approximately an hour’s worth of music and half an hour of spoken word which intertwine to create a unique and evocative seasonal listening experience.

Under A Winter’s Moon is a captivating, live performance rich with a miscellany of carols and tales that incorporate McKennitt’s eclectic Celtic sound with elements of indigenous oral traditions found in many cultures. It offers both a connection to the past and a link to the abiding spirit of the season, which continue to weave us together today and beyond. The six-panel, two-disc digipak will be released Nov. 18, 2022.

Limited to 4 per customer.
