The words of the Gaelic Blessing are hugely powerful and deeply meaningful. I always use them as part of a "Passing-Over" Blessing I give to those who have departed on the long journey and will be doing so tomorrow for the Mother of a Grove member who passed over two weeks ago. It is so difficult to decide which musical version I prefer and certainly John Rutter's is outstanding as is the version in the first post of this thread

John Rutter's version

But I hope you will excuse me if I say I do rather like my own version. Simple but heart-felt.

My version
(this is an arrangement by another composer of my new musical setting for the Blessing)

Oh thank you folks - I loved all those versions. :D And thank you for posting John Rutter's too. |-) It brings back many a fond memory. I grew up singing John Rutter's music both as a boy soprano and.... later after the voice change as an adult tenor. I must have performed that piece a hundred times over many years.

Many a-happy years as a chorister. :D Very happy indeed.

Yes, Rutter's version is the one I'm most familiar with.

Listening to your lovely interpretation malcolm I came across your haunting 'Lament to the Fallen' - the other side , the price of peace sadly.

Bless you. So pleased you liked my version of Deep Peace and my "Lament to the Fallen". You are so right about the price of peace. So many have paid that price and far too many more will do the same in the years to come. Somehow, humankind must find a path to lasting peace.

If anyone else would like to listen to my lament, it is at this link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrIp35YvPXM

There is something haunting and deeply emotional about the sound of the solo Uilleann pipes which seemed to me to perfectly fit a Lament. Yet when I then combine it with massed bagpipes and drums, it creates huge bravado and raw excitement. Such is the idiocy of war.
