Music that moves me....again

I started to learn this years ago, when I sang with a small Gaelic choir (and no, I cannot speak this beautiful language of my ancestors).  Back then, I had intended to sing it 'a capella', but I dug the words out again the other day, listened to it again...and decided to give a guitar arrangement a go.  I'm rather pleased with how it turned out (7 months into learning how to play, so it's very simple), now I just need to practice it a lot, and remember all the words.  Perhaps one day I'll be able to record it and post it on my blog (when it's had a LOT of practice!), but in the meantime, here's the gorgeous version of it by the wonderful Capercaillie.

This is just what I needed this morning. Nothing stirs the soul like Celtic music. Thank you.

It's great that you are putting in energy and time into a venture such as this. It can only feed your soul. And don't wait too long to post ... I'm sure you are much tougher on yourself than you need to be.

Namaste,

ps my word verification this post = verativa, which I like because it seems to come from veritas ... meaning truth.

WOW! I've just found you through "Child of Danu" and so glad I did - LOVE this music!!!

So loving this part of you, I ventured further back and have come to realize that I most certainly enjoyed my time here and will be back!

Thank you so much!!!!

Thought you'd appreciate these:

It would probably cost a small fortune to have these shipped to you, but they can all be purchased for download via the internet, and would be playable on Windows Media Player. If I remember correctly, when you've bought and downloaded songs, the WMPlayer will let you burn them to a CD.
