about

Ambient Manx Gaelic songs combining nature and spirit with harp and voice. A mystic celtic world, hypnotic, sensuous and, just ever so slightly, dangerous to enter.

lyrics

Padjer Columb Killey

Shee Yee as Shee ghooinn-ey (God's peace and man's peace)
Shee Yee as Col-umb Kill-ey (Peace of God and Saint Columba)
Er dagh uinniag, Er dagh Dorrys (On each window, on each door)
Er dagh towl cur stiagh re hollys (On each hole that lets in moonlight)
Er kiare corneilyn y thie (on the corners of the house)
Er y voayl ta mee my lhie (On the place where I myself lie)
As shee Yee orrym pene (And the peace of God on myself).

Clean Suggane

Vreeshey, Vreeshey, tar gys my hie,
tar gys y thie aym noght.
Vreeshey tar o tar gys y thie aym noght.
O foshil jee yn dorrys da Breeshey,
as lhig da Breeshey cheet stiagh.
Vreeshey tar oo gys y thie aym noght.
Tar oo gys y thie aym noght. ♫

Bridget, Bridget, come to my house,
come to my house tonight.
Open the door to Bridget,
and let Bridget come in.
Bridget, Bridget, come to my house,
come to my house tonight.

"Where are you going, my little brown girl ?
where are you going, my, little young girl?
Where are you going, my beauty, my lamb ?"
I am going to the fold," said she.

Why are you going there there, my little brown girl?
Why are you going there, my little young girl ?
Why are you going there, my beauty, my lamb
I am going there to milk," said she.

May I go with you, my little brown girl ?
May I go with you, my little young girl ?
May I go with you, my beauty, my lamb ?"
Come with me, then, sir, said she.
