Hehe, i was too to a limited extent- but I did reprimand you recently for going off topic and it's mildly hypocritical to then do the same thing myself!! :lol:

I'm interested in what you're saying, killiney, do you think that this is something which happens only in live performance or do you think that it's the same on the recording??

You reprimanded me?

Anyway, I think that MF is more suited to the CD, I have noticed how Máire's voice goes higher when she's performing live, even with Clannad, and as MF is such a deep and powerful song, I don't think a live performance will do it justice.

I've never understood why the Irish say arumm as opposed to 'arm', maybe its to do with their gaelic heritage, and the pronunciation of gaelic words.

I used to understand "The brave arm in autumn" and I didn't mind that it didn't make sense. :lol:

I swear its 'the brave arm in arumm (arm)', not 'brave arm in autumn'.

Lol! It is 'the brave arm ín arm'- grania and I just have this running joke about how moya pronounces it- double syllabic. Hence 'aaar um'. :lol:

Don't mock the Irish.

Anyway, a lot of words are pronounced double syllabic, like film Enya pronounces it 'fill um' you get the idea.

I can't imagine that giving arm a second syllable has to do anything with dialects. The music just seems to require it. There wouldn't have been many alternatives to that apart from changing the lyrics maybe.

I've noticed that Máre adds an extra syllable, even to her native Gaeilge.

yes indeed it is, but my mum is from the south so that gives me every right to mock the irish! Besides- the irish do enough mocking of themselves without me adding to it- it's their sense of humour.
Anyway, who said I was mocking the Irish? :lol: :P I do love moya's 'arum', it makes me smile. I'm not making fun at all!

Indeed the Irish mock themselves, and I didn't say you were mocking them.

Did I tell you about the Crown in Belfast?

You didn't say we were mocking them.....but you said don't mock them.
A word to the wise, you don't want your meanings to be misunderstood :wink:
