O’Reilly: The Children of Lir





Every Irish person loves a good story. We have an oral tradition going back thousands of years. One of the greatest stories in that tradition is The Children of Lir. It is a magical, compelling story. I own an orchestral version with narration and this one is my folk version. This is a fine modern version in the Celtic tradition.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and leave no doubt.

Good for you Olivier.
Just remember that nostalgia is not what it used to be  ;D


This is how I remember Stivell

I know  :-[ a trip down memory lane doesn't hurt every now and then ;D... Although, coming across videos of the yearly Festival de Cornouaille in Quimper made me pine for the large procession on the last Sunday with all the pipe bands (from Brittany towns, even boroughs, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Galicia, etc..) and the traditional costumes...Loved it when I attended a few.

here is one:

I could only find this version. I'll check it later.

Cheers, Olivier. I enjoyed that. Great music and wonderfully colourful pageantry. Great also to see younger people involved; hopefully they will keep the traditions alive.

That is the orchestral ["Classical"] version with heartfelt narration. It is very good but may not appeal to everyone's taste. I love it, naturally.

That was already the case nigh on 30 years when I was there...Lots of youngsters on drums and on the bombarde (shawm ?). Nice to see it is still the case.

Excellent, will try and line it up tomorrow.
