Dead Can Dance is an Australian on-again, off-again World Music/New Age group, and Loreena McKennitt is Canadian. She also specializes in World Music/New Age themes, but most of her best work reimagines Celtic music. My favorite of her songs is an original composition set to the Tennyson poem “The Lady of Shalott”.

“The Wind That Shakes the Barley” also appears on Loreen McKennitt’s new album. Free samples at the Amazon link.

This video appears to have been loaded with the permission of the band. I avoid loading anything that does not appear to be official, so if there is any problem, let me know. At the very least, this is one video that ought to inspire you to buy one awesome album.
