Aisling Ghael

Recommended Posts

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.
