Subject: Mo Ghile Mear/Fear a Bhata
From: GUEST,John
Date: 23 May 05 - 03:42 PM

Hi,

I am looking for the lyrics, and the accompanying pronunciations, of two songs. The first is Mo Ghile Mear. I have a recording of Sting singing it with the Chieftans for their Long Black Veil album. Does anyone have any info about the origens of the song; or the written music? The same goes for Fear a Bhata. I have Andy M Stewart's collection, and it is written out in that book; however, I was wondering if there was an older version with Gaelic verses. The melody is not the problem here, I can sing the "sounds" and be musically correct...I would rather not be singing gibberish and insulting people's heritage, however.

Thanks,
John

Welcome, John.

May I suggest you turn to the top right hand corner, where it says Lyric and Knowledge Search. Both songs have been discussed here with lyrics supplied and perhaps some phonetics. Start there and you can find much of what you need.

The tune to Mo Ghille is very much like "Men of Harlech" and "All through The Night".

Heard Miriam Backhouse sing "Fear a Bhata"back in the 70s/80s live, sent tingles down the spine (it must have to remember now) did she ever record it?

I got the same tingle from the O'Riada's recording of MGM. Sounded like a thousand voices and then a distinct voice would emerge and then the surge of the young and old chorus would return. I must go dig that out of the clabber around here and give the wheel another spin.

Hello Gerry,
Thankyou for the kind words,
Veera Vata is on the latest "Gypsy without a road" release from Mother Earth Music. It is a live recording and I love listening to it, because of the wonderful harmonies only a folk club can produce.
Best Wishes
Miriam

Hello, thank you for the kind words.
It is now on the re-release of "Gypsy without a road" on the Mother Earth label. A live recording made at the opening of the Robin Hood Folk Club way back when. The harmonies are stunning, what an audience,
Fond Regards,
Miriam
