By far McKennitt's most romantic venture - the liner notes describe the project's central theme as a "yearning toward love, liberty and integration" - Dreams is more ambitious than her sparse, impeccably recorded debut, Elemental, tripling the amount of players and laying the groundwork for the immense scope she would go on to attain on future recordings

LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Loreena McKennitt Format: Vinyl. Parallel Dreams, the Canadian quietly moving sophomore release, finds the mystical Loreena in true balladeer form. By far McKennitt's most romantic venture - the liner notes describe the project's central theme as a 'yearning toward love, liberty and integration'. Parallel Dreams was an emotional and career-turning point for McKennitt.

Loreena McKennitt’s debut recording and Quinlan Road’s inaugural release, Elemental, displays the artist’s first foray into the realm of Celtic music. Like all her subsequent recordings, this album was self-produced, and it was recorded one week in July, 1985 in a barn in Southern Ontario amongst a field of sunflowers. Celtic history would become my creative springboard, Loreena recalls of her growing fascination with the subject. Musically, I came to learn of, and be inspired by, many groups and artists ranging from those who authentically recreate its traditional forms to those who, like.
