The Mask and the Mirror

Lyrics: Marrakesh Night Market, Loreena McKennitt They’re gathered in circles the lamps light their faces The crescent moon rocks in the sky The poets of drumming keep heartbeats suspended The smoke swirls up and then it dies (CHORUS)Would you like my mask? would you like my mirror? cries the man in the shadowing hood You can look at yourself you can look at each other or you can look at the face of your god The stories are woven and fortunes are told The truth is measured by the weight of your gold The magic lies scattered on rugs on the ground Faith is conjured in the night market’s sound (CHORUS) The lessons are written on parchments of paper They’re carried by horse from the river Nile says the shadowy voice In the firelight, the cobra is casting the flame a winsome smile (CHORUS) ———- Not my first video, but the first I’ve ever finished. I know there are some timing problems in the beginning… I’m working on it! ­čÖé

  1. This has been my favorite movie since I was´╗┐ 8 years old. I have literally seen it about 70 times.
    If you haven’t seen this movie, GO SEE IT!!!!!!!!!
    it’s so worth it.

  2. she got angels voice touching´╗┐ hearts in a warm way …. With magical music
    Love the way she sing using Arabian and orient tunes
    and the clip is magical

  3. Thanks for this upload, never seen this movie…looks so visually beautiful and strange.´╗┐ Loreena’s song works so well with this clip, nice work.

  4. she takes me to some mysterious place inside that feels fundamentally´╗┐ more real.

  5. Love the metallic death grunting at the start of it. She loves these Eastern, Coptic. Islamic influences doesn’t she? Groovy – in a 60’s psychadelic sort of way. Can some one please explain the video? – that’s equally psychadelic too …..´╗┐

  6. can you believe the drums? She’s not´╗┐ only a great poet, and songwriter, but she’s assembled some amazing musicians to bring her stuff to life. SEE HER IN CONCERT if she comes your way. It was one of the greatest shows I’ve ever seen.
