This is a beautiful song for a vocal solo with piano accompaniment, or simply as a piano solo. It sounds a lot more difficult than it really is, which is a real plus! This is a great piece for the intermediate/advanced student or to just play for fun. It is a must have!

The Beauty Of The Soul
I came across this arrangement of Old Irish Blessing by accident. I actually was looking for something else. Now, whenever I say farewell to someone I care about I speak this text them (this arrangement of words is a bit different than many other interpretations of the same source). Or sometimes I'll play the orchestral arrangement/treatment that I've done of this. It always releases deep felt feelings and many times tears follow. And it doesn't matter wheather you're male or female. This is a great, great song

Perfect for wedding benediction / prayer
I am singing this as the benediction prayer at the wedding for my best friend. The service is Celtic, and this is perfect for the occassion.

Great tune, Great text
Many have composed an "Irish Blessing" however, this one is a winner for sure. Ideal for that special church service, that special funeral or wedding. Think of it as a typical Irish Cottage Song that will blend into any venue with success.

A "MUST" FOR EVERY SATB REPERTOIRE
I first heard this gem performed at a High School baccalaureate some years ago and there wasn't a dry eye left in the house. I've since used this on various occasions... but always to say, "Good Bye" in a memorable and meaningful way. Don't be without this one!
