To End All Wars

I Heard Moya Brennan sing a couple of songs for the music score of the movie, "To End All Wars" According to the credits, the titles are "Mo Mhiann," "Healing Heart," "La na Cruinne "(end of time) "Find the place," and "I will go".

Now, as I speak English with great alacrity, It isn't to difficult to figure out which is which of the English songs: but I have absolutely no idea how to tell the difference between the Gaelic ones. I would like to know which song is which. I'd also like to know if she has ever released a cd with any of those songs on them. (If she didn't, she should. They are positively awesome.{I mean that in the strictest sense. Awe inspiring.}

I Would have to go back and watch the movie again to be sure, but I think one of the Gaelic songs was just before the crucifixion scene, and one was at the credits, . There where probably other instances, But I can't remember at present.




Why in the heck are there so many polls on this forum?

Once I asked Moya after a concert if a CD with the soundtrack of this movie exists. Unfortunately not :(.

On the 22 January the movie was on German TV again. There is a scene with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders walking out of a castle and I was wondering which castle it is. The next day - the 23 January - I flew to Glasgow to the Celtic Connections Festival for 3 days. Sunday night after the DERVISH concert (morning :wink:) I was in the festival club and there a man told me that it is easy to go from Glasgow to Sterling Castle. So I did just some hours later. But I had no clue about Sterling Castle. I had a guided tour there. When we were in the Inner Close the guide told about the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and the museum there. I couldn't believe it. This castle was their regimental headquarter and the scene in the movie was filmed at Sterling Castle.

Photos from the castle you can find here http://forums.moyabrennan.com/viewtopic.php?t=3278. When I posted the link in the forum I had no time to write a story to my trip to Scotland. Because to write in English takes a lot of time to me.

Welcome to the forum, Catch22! :D

Many of the polls on the forum go way back, and then get found again from time to time, so as more people post, they become more obvious again. I've been here just under 2 years now, and in that time, not many new ones have popped up! Eventually, they will probably just "fall off" the board - but most of the threads these days are discussions!

Hope you enjoy your time with us!

Aha! So that explains it!

Welcome to the forum!

It is a shame that the soundtrack to this film was never released as there are some truly wonderful songs on it. If I remember correctly the film was due to be released in late 2001, and then we all know what happened that September and as such it was felt that it wouldn't be an appropriate film to be showing in cinemas. I remember it did show in a few places though, but without the widespread showing of the film a soundtrack album wouldn't be very successful.

And as for the polls - until a few weeks ago the forum was set to delete any topics unused for six months. For some reason the forum was very fond of the polls and refused to let them go, and now we have piles of polls! :roll: :lol:

Barry.

Good news, everyone!

When I went to see Moya perform here in NYC last April 6th, I was able to get a copy of my DVD insert signed! Here it is:

Just as she was autographing the item, she commented something about people have been asking her about it.

I boldly asked her if its soundtrack would ever be released. Her response was that she has re-recorded TWO of the tracks from the film with Cormac and will be included in the upcoming release. She said nothing more. She sounded very enthusiastic about it, though!

Just throwing the lyrics in quick. The first song I've almost got (I hope!), Go Brách (Mo Mhian), there are a ton of mistakes! I hope I've got the general idea though..

Casadh mo Chroí (The Turning/Pulsing of my Heart)

Rachfaidh mise siar sán áit a bhfuil mo thriall
Is beir liom go deo

I will go west [back] where my trial lies
And hold on to me forever


Ó bhual mé air nuair a casadh mo chroí
Is beir liom go deo

I met him when my heart turned
And hold on to me forever


Fada uaim, ó 'ghrá tabhair dom do lámh, fán liom
Is beir liom go deo

Far from me my love, give my your hand, stay with me
And hold on to me forever


---

Go Brách (Mo Mhian) / Forever (My Love)

____ ___ thrialfas
Go brách mo mhian
Ó rún dílis
Go brách mo mhian

_____ I would journey
Forever my love
O faithful darling
Forever, my love


Saol ____ a féin
Nach mbeidh bearadh air

Life ____ his (his ____ life)
May it not be cut short


Ar aghaidh, do shúl'sa
Arraing mo leiriu

In your face, your eyes,
I see my own worry (pangs)

Both the songs are on the "Harps & Voices" CD right? I know for a fact that one of them is because Moya told me that it would be on there when I saw her live right before the My Match Is A Makin' CD came out.

Thanks for that bit of insight into the lyrics! I do sometimes wish Moya would enunciate her words more :wink: :lol:
