Thread Name: Lyr Req: Altan song about St. Bridget
Subject: Altan song about St. Bridget
Altan was in our town this week for a concert (Athens OH is a small college town and we don't get many Celtic bands here--SIGH!!!) It was of course incredible, and they got a great reception. Hopefully they'll be back. If anyone has been waffling about seeing them this round, don't. Just go.

DS sang --I love it when he does, and it's fairly rare that he does, I think-- this beautiful Gaelic song about St. Bridget-- with a great lead-in about the Goddess Bride (SP?) and her reinventing herself as the saint when Ireland became Christian. Anyway it is a gorgeous song, and I don't do Gaelic, so I'd like the words, the tune and a translation if possible. (I didn't notice that they had recorded it on any of the CDs they had for sale... Does anyone know if they have?)
