The Deer’s Cry

During our pilgrimage in Ireland today, we visited the Rock of Cashel, a place that has a legendary connection to St Patrick. Supposedly but erroneously attributed to St Patrick is the poem The Deer’s Cry, which is beautifully set to music by Shaun Davey.

I first came across this many years ago on an album entitled The Brendan Voyage. It is one of those tunes that simply seeps into the soul.

And so, enjoy…
