I've got an Irish version of Silent Night by Enya and I was wondering if anyone knows what she is saying (scratching head) unsure.gif

Peace

Mikel

I have an MP3 on my hard drive. My wife and I are musicians and we play a lot of Irish pubs etc... and we call what we do Neo-Celtic and I thought it would be very hip to do an Irish Version of Silent Night at a couple of shows in addition to my extended family Christmas dinner.

I actually was not looking at that page but I suspect it it what I was looking for!

Thank you very much, I will compare it to the song and see if we can muddle through it.

Peace

That site shows the Scots Gaelic translation..... cool.gif

Although the two languages are similar - from what I know, they are not the same wink.gif

Mike, I'll try again. I couldn't tell the difference between Irish and Scottish Gaelic. This page looks like what you are looking for.


http://www.pathname.com/enya/singles.html

Oíche Chiúin
Traditional, Irish Gaelic
Oíche Chiúin
Silent Night

Oíche chiúin, oíche Mhic Dé,
Cách 'na suan dís araon.
Dís is dílse 'faire le spéis
Naíon beag, leanbh ceansa 'gus caomh.

Críost, 'na chodladh go sámh.
Críost, 'na chodladh go sámh.


Oíche chiúin, oíche Mhic Dé,
Aoirí ar dtús chuala 'n scéal.
Allelúia aingeal ag glaoch.
Cantain suairc i ngar is i gcéin.


Críost an Slánaitheoir Féin.
Críost an Slánaitheoir Féin.

Silent night, night of God's son,
Everyone is asleep, the pair together.
The most faithful pair, watching with hope
A little baby, a mild and gentle child.

Christ, calmly asleep.
Christ, calmly asleep.


Silent night, night of God's son,
Shepherds were first to hear the tale.
The angels crying out Alleluia.
Lovely chanting near and far.


Christ, the saviour himself.
Christ, the saviour himself.
