Carmina Gadelica: Hymns & Incantations

Carmina Gadelica Carmina Gadelica Lindisfarne

Alexander Carmichael

Lindisfarne, 1992

The first volumes published in 1900, this is an abridged edition of the classic collection of the Scottish Celtic oral tradition.

These wonderful prayers, songs, and poems, handed down over generations by Highlanders and Islanders, were gathered for years during the 19th century and early 20th century by Carmichael in his sojourns, mostly in his career as a customs officer. The quaint, simple, and heartfelt words are a poignant reminder of the native Christianity which was expressed by the farthest reach of Celts.
