Subject: RE: Jean Ritchie Book in the Auction
Jean, thank you for that. I certainly won't complain over your translation; that makes a lovely song, and if Seamus liked it his word is good enough for me. I've loved the waulking songs ever since I heard Flora MacNeil's voice singing Ailein Duinn on the old Caedmon LP. That is a sweet idea of yours to get the auction winner to post the lyrics. Meanwhile thank you very much indeed for donating the booklet via the auction.
