The Book of Secrets, the follow-up to 1994's The Mask and Mirror - there was a Christmas EP, A Winter Garden, released in 1995) - finds Loreena McKennitt in the same musical vein, mixing Celtic, Spanish, Italian, and new age to create her own distinct sound. The only problem is that she did not seem to progress much during the time between releases. This is not necessarily a bad thing, since she still knows how to write incredible melodies and layer instruments to produce peaceful images.
