Overview

Carmina Gadelica: Hymns and Incantations from the Gaelic by Alexander Carmichael

This unique collection of living spirituality, rising from the depths of Celtic Christianity, represents a hidden, oral tradition of greatest power and beauty, handed down through countless generations of Hebridean peasants. During his travels, Alexander Carmichael would visit the peasants in their huts, spending hours in front of their peat fires while they "intoned in a low, recitative manner" these poems and prayers. This is the most complete anthology of Celtic oral tradition ever assembled.
