"While her albums have featured soothing, ultra-melodic arrangements, Loreena McKennitt's lyrics have reflected her interests in the poetry of W.B. Yeats, William Blake, and Alfred Lord Tennyson. McKennitt's music has been heard on the soundtracks of numerous plays and films. In 1989, she was commissioned by the National Film Board of Canada to compose the music for a film series, Woman and Spirituality. Her subsequent commissions include such films as Jade, Highlander III, and Disney's the Santa Clause, as well as TV shows including Northern Exposure, Due South, and EZ Streets. Her 1998 album The Book Of Secrets sold more than 4 million albums in America alone. During the new millennium, Her Spanish version of "Dante's Prayer" was featured in the Canadian/Venezuelan feature film A House with a View of the Sea in 2001. In 2002 she headlined a concert in Winnipeg for Queen Elizabeth and, in 2003, received the Order of Canada. Two years later, McKennitt began work on her seventh studio album, An Ancient Muse, which was released in 2006."
