So, shall we give it a try?
Today's music is from Celtic Woman. I watched the PBS Celtic Woman Special tonight, I think they were doing their "Greatest Journey" tour. Since it was one of their old tour videos, it made me want to go back and listen to some of my old Celtic Woman. While listening to their self-title album, I came across Harry's Game, which is all in Gaelic. It is wonderful.... mystical and earthy....mysterious.
I also found some background info on the song itself: "The lyrics to the song were written to depict the story of The Troubles among all sides in Northern Ireland and the future of the sides (Nationalist, Republican, Unionist and Loyalist). The lyrics, derived from an ancient text from Galway, explain how in war and in violence, no side will win - that all lose." The lyrics and translation are included at the end of the post.
I'll let you have a listen, and you can tell me what you think...
