Loreena McKennit - "Dante's Prayer"


I heard this again the other night. By coincidence, I had posted something with a reference to Dante's "Divine Comedy" a little while ago and this piece of music was inspired by it and always stirs something for me.

It came at a good time for me to hear it again as this last month was touched by a quite sudden loss. I hope others find it as healing and beautiful:
