This inspiring collection of Celtic lyrical poems and prayers on the theme of nature is selected from the Carmina Gadelica, with each selection presented in both Gaelic and English. The beautiful full-color illustrations and illuminations make this an ideal gift book.
The Carmina Gadelica is the most comprehensive collection of poems and prayers from the Gaelic tradition of oral poetry. Gathered by Alexander Carmichael in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland"from Arran to Caithness, from Perth to St. Kilda"these poems were handed down through many generations as a living, oral tradition. The traditional ways of life that sustained it have disappeared, but these poems and prayers live on to remind us of the faith of the unknown poets who composed them.
This new hardcover gift edition includes specially-commissioned full-color illustrations and Celtic illuminations throughout. Beautifully produced with ribbon page marker.
