Traditional meets rock. The King of the Faries
I think this is my favourite song:
I was at the Furey's concert in Belfast a couple of weeks ago and had the privilege to listen live to two of my all time favourites enjoy
Grace, two versions.
Believe or not. This is from an old wax recording from 1912.
The Wearing of the Green - John McCormack
GOD SAVE ALL HERE!!
Probably been mentioned before but I thought id mention this again. Brings back memories of the final farewell growing up.
Music to the poem "The Stolen Child" by Irish poet W.B Yeats:
A song composed by an Englishman and song by a Scot.
But still about Ireland. Anyway so beautiful.
This certainly isn't an Irish song; but I just love it so much.
It is very very spiritual origins, I believe. Leonard Cohen was a fallen away Jewish Guy, struggling very greatly with issues and took time out to consider matters of Faith. He homed in, having Jewish roots on the songs of King David.
Actually the result was illegible in the lyrics which went on for pages and pages. His first recording was abysmal but someone did a cover and picked out the better version.
A wonderful result; Cohen spent months in a kind of prayer seeking this. I do believe God answered, in a kind of striiaght lines in curved line kind of way God answered his agnostic request for answers.
Anyway I love it. God speaking in one's man darkness.
The exact opposite of, 'Faith of our Fathers'
In one way it makes no sense at all.
In another it makes total sense..I think...errr maybe. But I love it anyway.
One man's search for God. I do believe that to seek is to find and knock; the door will be opened unto you...
