BOOK OF SECRETS ('97) is a long ways from 1985's ELEMENTAL. Quickly, the visionary realms of Ms McKennitt took on more and more multi-instrumental layers until by her fourth album, THE VISIT ('91) she had perfected just how to build her ethereal works into heart-pounding sculptures of exotic art masterpieces and poems of rich beauty and deep structure. Loreena left the trail blazed by Clannad and their progeny Enya, fully paved and raced away from them at lightning speed. THE BOOK OF SECRETS is literally a journey, a travel through Loreena's literary and musical world as well as a personal documentation of her physical travels, and THE BOOK OF SECRETS is also her sojourn, her resting place after her travels.

Album by Loreena McKennitt. Night Ride Across the Caucasus. MusicBrainz: The Book of Secrets.

The Book of Secrets is McKennitt’s sixth release and her most successful album in terms of sales, having reached double platinum status in the US. The nature of music on this release is mostly soothing with only a few faster and lively moments. Nevertheless, the majority of the album consists of mid tempo songs centered around McKennitt’s expressive voice. However, that doesn’t mean that the instrumentation is second rate or cannot stand by itself without the vocals.
