The Journey So Far - The Best of Loreena McKennitt is a commemorative recording to celebrate 30 years as a performing and recording artist. This captivating retrospective, follows along an exotic sonic road of career highlights reflecting the scope and diversity of Loreena McKennitt's musical catalog and world travels.

The 12-song set traces the highlights of McKennitt's career which includes sales of over 14 million albums, 2 Grammy nominations, and a once in a lifetime journey in the footsteps of the Celts. Culled from her double platinum album The Book Of Secrets and platinum releases The Mask and Mirror and The Visit among others, this “Best Of” collection brings together rich cultural textures like the weave of an exotic musical tapestry, with an eye on history and a foot in the present.

Of the songs held most dear to those who are familiar with her music, the cross format hit “The Mummers’ Dance” and the “Lady of Shalott” are considered two of the most treasured. The release also includes “Bonny Portmore” (from The Visit and as heard in the movie Highlander), “Lady Shalott” (from The Visit) and “The Mystic's Dream” (from The Mask and Mirror and as heard in the mini-series The Mists Of Avalon).

"When I look back on the road from where I have come, the people I've met, the places and experiences which have informed the music, or even where we created or recorded, I marvel at how rich my journey has been," says Loreena.
