Nádúr - Hymn to Her Love

Postby Roibeard Óg » Sun Oct 06, 2013 8:21 am

Hymn to her Love really is my favourite song at the minute from the new album, I'm always attracted to the darker songs of an album before I can get into the full thing! :lol:

Moladh go hard leat, _____ _____ leat (Praise so high to you, ____ ____ to you)
Thar sna bhflaitheas araor (Over in the heavens above)
Cásta le chéile ó ghualainn go gualainn (Intwined together, shoulder to shoulder)
Seo mo iomann duit féin (This is my hymn for you)

(note: in Gaelic when we add 'féin' (self) after 'duit' (for you), it puts a very strong emphasis on the 'you'. This has carried into English from the Gaelic, "would you yourself?" etc. So the lyrics here are very deep.)

Chorus / Curfá:
Hymn to your station,
Hymn to relations,
Hymn to eternal love.
Iomann don lá seo, (hymn for this day)
Iomann don ghrá bheo, (hymn for living love)
Iomann do chuairt an cheol (hymn for the coming of music)
(or cheo = myst)

Promises are broken just like a dawning
Lullabies along the way
And the lark in the morning soaring, returning
Weaves its magic on what may

Chorus/Curfá

Hymn for all seasons, hymn for your reasons
_________ __ leat féin (________ __ by yourself (alone))
Cásta le chéile ó ghualainn go gualainn (So intwined together, shoulder to shoulder)
Seo mo iomann duit féin (This is my hymn for you)

Chorus/Curfá

A darker song, this? Absolutely not, for me it's one of the highlights of the album and more comforting than any other. Simply a beautiful song of eternal love. The only thing is I am intrigued to who the "her" is in the title "To Her Love" ...... ;)

Phantas, you are so right! The word is definitely not aréir, it would imply loss, it's scary how one word can change an entire song! It sounds more like araor, I'm not sure of the meaning, but it's found in lots of Middle Irish manuscripts (thank you Google!). This has to be my favourite song so far, I'm still letting the others sink in! :D

Please tell me the lyrics are on the CD version? I'm going mad :lol:

Unfortunately, not, which I think is a very big shame! Also for me this is a positive song instead of a sad one, very melodic and memorable!

I wonder how many of the "stories" told in Clannad's songs haven't got a "real" story as their background? For some reason, I think this could be one of those "mystical" songs indeed...

Maybe not a real story but I imagined at first that the "her" in "to her love" could refer to Mary, mother of God? Or one of the many goddessess of Celtic myth. idk... I'm just speculating here. Mary seems the most appropiate considering the use of "hymn to her station" .... but I'm def not sure.
