Loreena McKennitt Lyrics. Breaking Of The Sword". On a sunny April morning My dear son, you were born Until one day you were called away And from my heart was torn. As a boy, you knew the stables As a lad, you knew the fields My son, you worked beside me But to country, you must yield. You were called to serve the country You were called to serve the king And from our home, you left one day And of this, today I sing. When I stood there at the station And our eyes, one last time met It was at that moment, my dear son 'Tis that I'll ne'er forget.
The single, entitled Breaking of the Sword , was inspired during Loreena’s participation in April at The Canadian National Vimy Memorial for the 100th anniversary of the historic Battle of Vimy Ridge. During the ceremony however, she performed Dante’s Prayer from her 1997 album The Book of Secrets. Loreena has written the song in the first person from a mother’s perspective. The track was recorded with both The Central Band of the Canadian Armed Forces and the 90-voice Stratford Concert Choir located in McKennitt’s home base of Stratford, Canada and led by director Ian Sadler. Their contributions to the piece symbolize the collective feelings of the community when it loses a citizen. I realize there are at least three kinds of families experiencing loss in times of war-the immediate family, the military family, and the communities where the fallen have lived, says Loreena.
