Subject: Tune Req: AMHRÁIN NA FÉIDEARTHACHTA.
From: Sleepy Rosie
Date: 15 Jan 09 - 03:37 AM

I found this song on a thread requesting songs ascribed to St. Brigid. This was offered up as 'on coming up'.
The title translates as 'Songs of Possibility'. And I rather liked the lyrics.
Can anyone say more about this song? And hopefully provide the tune?
Thanks, SR

AMHRÁIN NA FÉIDEARTHACHTA.

A mhaighdean rua na rónta,
A shaighead i gcroithe na bhfear,
Tá lasair ár dteampaill fónta
Is tá ré an mheirligh thart.
tá tine na rímhná lasta,
Tá ár n-aisling ag teacht go saol,
Tá amhráin na féidearthachta á gcasadh
Go binn ó chuar do bhéil.

Tá gloithe ar na déithe,
Na naoimh is na saoithe ceoil,
Bíonn mo chroí go híondúil téite
Ia tá fis ár sinsear beo.
Is é mo ghuí go gcreidfear iadsan
-a mhaireanns de réir an dlí-
go bhfeictear ríocht na gceart ar thalamh
is go dtuigtear bun gach brí.


Is é mo ghuí go gcreidfear iadsan
-a mhaireanns de réir an dlí-
go bhfeictear ríocht na gceart ar thalamh
is go dtuigtear bun gach brí.

Songs of Possibility.

Red haired virgin of the seals,
Arrow in the hearts of men,
The spark of our temple is rekindled
And the robber's rule has ended.
Our kinswoman's flame is burning,
Our dream is being fulfilled,
And songs of possibility
Are chanted sweetly from your mouth.

Gods have been invoked,
Saints and master-musicians,
My heart is constantly aglow
That our ancestors' vision lives.
I pray that they will be believed
-those that live by the law-
that the kingdom of good will be seen on earth
and the base of all meaning understood.

I pray that they will be believed
-those that live by the law-
that the kingdom of good will be seen on earth
and the base of all meaning understood.

There's a version of this song recorded by Liam O Maonlaoi of Hot House Flowers on an album of gaelic songs called "Éist Arís".

Here's the tune sung by its author, and - by surprise at the end - my bad ol' self too.
