Really, everyone should get into that site and listen to the clip. It's beautiful harp playing, and the woman's voice is a great blend with the instrument.
My people are French Canadian, and my father's family is part Norman and part Breton. I know the Norman part come from a town not far from Cherbourg. The Breton part I'm not sure of, except that the town is on the north coast and really not too far from the border of Normandie.
My French is not too bad.
I thought that author must be Breton, beause of the spelling of his name. That strange imagery of our origins in the sea, sounds like the mystics of all the celtic coastal lands.
