Does anyone have the words to the air "Aisling Ghael". I've been working with a singer who's fallen in love with the melody, but neither of us knows enough Gaelic to get them from the "Music of Dreams" CD.

Either the original Gaelic, a transliteration, or English lyrics would be acceptable.

Well, this was hard, indeed.

The best I could do was to locate some English lyrics on a website promoting the Iarla O Lianard album "Seven Steps to Mercy". That website is
here. The words listed there are as follows:

"Aisling Gheal" (Bright Vision)

...And then I saw her
My vision woman
Hair abundant
And flowing about
Falling starlike
Touching the dewdrops
Stepping lightly
Brushing the heath
Upon her chest
Her breasts
Pefection
Her face a rose hip
Her neck a swan...

Thanks. That's a start. I'd found a number of "7 Steps" references, but not that one.
