Product Notes

All instrumental Celtic Harp Classic Hymns, mostly Celtic tunes Dennis Doyle - Celtic harp, keyboard, concertina Austin Doyle - guitar, cover art Melody Flores - violin Frank McNulty - flute, whistle, oboe, recorder Legend has it that Martin Luther borrowed the tunes of popular drinking songs for hymns, saying in defense, 'why should the devil have all the great music?'. Legend or not, it is evident in any study of western Christian hymnody that many of the tunes of our classic traditional hymns were borrowed from popular melodies of the time. This collection includes tunes mostly borrowed from Celtic music. They are known by many names because each generation has composed new words to fit these beautiful melodies. 'Land of Rest' is a traditional American tune but it is also known as 'Jerusalem, My Happy Home'. The tune 'Ye Bonnie Banks and Braes' was used by the Scottish poet Robert Burns to describe his townland, but is also the air to 'We Cannot Measure How You Heal'. 'O Mary of Graces' is from a Gaelic tune 'Mhuire na n-Gras' with words by the Irish President and founder of the Gaelic League Douglas Hyde. 'All Through the Night' is known in Welsh as 'Ar Hyd Y Nos' but is also the air to 'Day is Done'. 'Sancti Venite', a Latin hymn by the Irish St. Secundinus is also known as 'Come and Take the Flesh of Christ'. This tune is also known as 'Gartan', reputed as the village where St.Colmcille was born. The 'Living God' is a lovely anonymous American tune. The 'Lullaby-Suantrai' is from the Gaelic air 'Suantrai na Maighdine', 'Lullaby of the Maiden'. We are all familiar with the Gaelic air to 'Morning Has Broken', also known as 'Bunessan', a village in Scotland. 'Be Thou My Vision', otherwise known as 'Slane', is named after the site in Ireland in which St.Patrick confronted the Gaelic Chieftains. 'Deus Meus Adiuva', 'My God Help Me' is by Maol Iosa O Brolchain, a 12th century Irish monk who wrote this tune mixing both Irish-Gaelic and Latin words. The Gaelic tune, 'The King of Love', is also known as 'St.Columba'. 'Columba' in Latin is Colmcille in Irish, the great apostle and founder of monasteries in Scotland. The 'Candles of Angels' is from the Gaelic tune 'Coinnle na n-Aingeal' . It is a traditional Irish Christmas hymn. 'Sent Forth by God's Blessing' is but one of the names of hymns using the Welsh tune, 'The Ash Grove'. 'Alleluia, Sing to Jesus' is also one of the hymns using the Welsh tune 'Hyfrydol' which mean 'cheerful' in Welsh. It was composed in 1830 by Rowland Huw Prichard. It is also the tune to 'Love Divine'. The 'Invocation to St.Brigid' is from the Gaelic 'Gabhan Molta Bhride', the poetry of the text calls her the 'shining torch of Leinster.' 'Mary Birthed God's Son' is from a Gaelic Christmas hymn, 'Rug Muire Mac do Dhia'. This tune is intertwined with 'In Ainm an Athar', 'In the Name of the Father', a traditional Irish piece. We end with the 'Irish Alleluia', the Gaelic 'Seinn Alleluia', 'Sing Out Alleluia'.
