Celtic Woman – The Voice

 (H/T BattlefieldUSA)

Lo there do I see my father,

Lo there do I see my mother, my Sisters and my brothers ,

Lo there do I see the line of my people, back to the beginning.

Lo, they do call me, they bid me take my place among them, in the halls of Valhalla, where the brave may live forever. 

(H/T Kerodin, commenting on: ‘Faith, Folk, Family‘)

    That’s some beautiful music and a refreshing contrast of whats peddled in the mainstream as “art”

    So, which came first, the prayer or 13th Warrior?

      A quick search found this: The poem was inspired by Ibn Fadlan´s 10th c. account (Ar-Risala, “The Letter”) of the Varangian Rus.

      The original was spoken by a slave girl following her deceased master by ritual death.

    While we’re on the subject of awesome music, here is the most epic cover of Kashmir.

    In this vein I like to introduce “Eine Kampf um Rom” publ. 1876 Germany, is a so called “Stufenbuch”.

    That means the plots stretches over generations and shows how individuals and people interact with and affect history.

    also published in English, lots of heroics for the people:

    For something different, may I suggest Wardruna at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HMl81zRp4E&list=RDbKMDcTnezvU
    or

    Eivor’s Trollabundin at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LpiFmZLICgM

    They will fit with our earlier discussions.

    This is my favorite form of music. Hard rock mixed with orchestra and choir. For you fellow Northmen out there check out Leaves Eyes at http://www.leaveseyes.de/ They are Norwegian and German symphonic metal at its best.

    Now I gotta save my soon to be worthless FRNs and get some quality training.

    Celtic Rock (in multiple sensse of the word rock).

    30 years ago it was Scottish group ‘Big Country’ making guitars sing like bagpipes with songs like ‘In a Big Country’, ‘Fields of Fire’ and the failed Scottish Jacobite rebellion of ‘The Storm’ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MT8TBPt_XQ

    For some berserker hardcore try Heather Alexander’s “March Of Cambreadth’ – music and lyrics here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPZFn1-AeWI

    Yes Max I like these a lot, with a north Europe heritage,, these images and songs and legends are very much part of who we are. The Odinist desire to die with one’s sword in hand is mirrored by today’s prayer to be found in a pile of empty brass..
