Loreena McKennitt in her album "The Visit" composes a short but intense song entitled "Courtyard Lullaby". The context in which the piece is born is a location of Portugal in Quinta das Torres, a 16th century palace with a typical courtyard decorated with orange trees, Loreena writes in the booklet "the feel of the place reminded me of the Unicorn tapestries which hang in The Cloisters in New York City. The tapestries and the lodge are both rich with earthy, pre-Christian iconography depicting the mysterious life and death cycle of the seasons. It was in the courtyard.

Courtyard Lullaby Lyrics. Come to me," it sings "Hear the pulse of the land The ocean's rhythms pull To hold your heart in its hand. And when the wind draws strong Across the cypress trees The nightbirds cease their songs So gathers memories.

Courtyard Lullaby: The photographs that appear in this booklet were taken at Quinta das Torres, a 16th century hunting lodge near Azeitão, Portugal, where photographer Elisabeth Feryn and I stayed for a week. Within the lodge was a courtyard, marked at each corner by orange trees. The feel of the place reminded me of the Unicorn tapestries which hang in The Cloisters in New York City. Produced by Loreena McKennitt Co-produced by Brian Hughes.
