The Music Of The Irish.

Whether the bohran, the guitar,
The harp, or the tin whistle,
The music of the Gael
Is a music which touches
The human heart and soul.
Providing the listener
And the performer
With a sense of the mystical.

An element of the Celtic
Tradition which was well
On its way prior to the
Arrival of Padraig
Out of the depths of pre
Christian folklore. And our
Land of fairies and
Leprechauns prior to
Brigid.

That is, a music permeated
With the culture, the history,
And the lore of the Celtic race.
Thus, a music and song relating
To the continuing reality of artistic
Creation initiated originally by God.
