Description: Tori's twelfth album has been described by her as "a 21st century song cycle inspired by classical music themes spanning over 400 years". She was approached by Deutsche Grammophon to do an album that focused on reworking classical pieces of music into new compositions. A richly textured album with arrangements by John Philip Shenale, the compositions are solely acoustic and include layered strings, woodwind instruments and features noted classical musicians. Additionally, the record includes voices of Tori's daughter and niece.

The deluxe edition of "Night of Hunters" came with a bonus DVD which included a documentary about the making of the record, and also features the videos for "Carry" and "Nautical Twilight".

The album was awarded the Echo Klassik-ohne-Grenzen-Preis (Classics without Borders Prize) in 2012.

The classical piece each song was based on is noted in the comments below.
