Reviews:

This new 'Best Of' album features 12 of McKennitt's most treasured songs -- among others, the top ten single 'The Mummers' Dance' (from THE BOOK OF SECRETS), 'Lady of Shalott' (from THE VISIT), 'Bonny Portmore' (From THE VISIT and heard in the movie HIGHLANDER) and 'The Mystic's Dream' (from THE MASK AND MIRROR and as heard in the mini-series THE MISTS OF AVALON).

This retrospective of the Journey So Far is simply that, musical snapshots of a journey yet to complete itself and perhaps it never will.

A 2CD Deluxe Edition is also available.
