This recording is the result of a collaborative few days, in July 1995, between some of the musicians I regularly work with and some special guests. The primary purpose was to explore the potential in our musical chemistry. I used the vehicles of some familiar and lesser-known Christmas and winter carols, as well as a traditional English lyric that I set to music in 1982 ("Seeds Of Love").

Conducted in the very rural and comfortable environs of Real World Studios in Wiltshire, England, it became one of my most enjoyable recording experiences. The company and musicianship were superb and stimulating and a special thanks goes to all involved.

A Winter Garden: Five Songs for the Season is an EP by Loreena McKennitt. Recorded and released in 1995, it contains five tracks: three Christmas carols, McKennitt's adaptation of Archibald Lampman's poem Snow also released on To Drive the Cold Winter Away, and the traditional English Seeds of Love. All the tracks on the EP were later released on her 2008 album A Midwinter Night's Dream. Coventry Carol 2:21. God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen 6:49. Good King Wenceslas 3:19. Like all of McKennitt's material, these songs gorgeously blend folk traditions from around the world with an emphasis on the Irish and Scottish, seasoned with a sizable dose of literate universalist mysticism, and undistractingly garnished with a shimmering, glossy modern pop polish. Album 2013 5 Songs. 60 million songs. Three months on us. Loreena McKennitt's songs for the season are haunting for their beauty and her fascinating voice. Blending traditional Irish music with worldbeat and New Age-like instrumentation, McKennitt's arrangements are at once elegant and eloquent, enchanting and familiar, whether she's singing Coventry Carol, God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen, or Good King Wenceslas. Albeit short, this album is a perfect companion piece to Loreena McKennitt's To Drive the Cold Winter Away, a sparse, classic album of older Christmas Solstice songs while this presents a shorter, very soothing and lush recording.
