The Deer’s Cry: Songs of the Celtic Saints
An old Irish legend says that St. Patrick, traveling though territory controlled by a Druid chieftain, recited a prayer of protection as he walked. The chieftain’s army saw only a great stag leading a herd of red deer, and the saint’s men passed through safely. That prayer has come to be known as The Deer’s Cry, or St. Patrick’s Breastplate.
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Irish traditional music, from the mystical to the jovial, including songs and hymns attributed to St. Patrick and St. Columba, a mystical hymn to St. Brigid, and toe-tapping jigs and reels. Vocalist Natalie Ingrisano, fiddler Brandon Vance, and guitarist/keyboardist Henry Lebedinsky serve up this family-friendly musical treat – no green beer involved!
