View Full Version : Theme Song

22nd Jul 2006, 06:45
After a fair amount of research trying to find out the lyrics to the theme song, I found the lyrics to Ailein Duinn -- and, since the first time I found it, it seems to be everywhere, so I've no idea why I had such trouble finding it in the first place. XD;

Anyway, my reason for posting this thread is because there's one element of the theme song that I haven't seen addressed -- the chorus. Before and after it, the woman sings "Gura mise tha fo eislean / Moch sa mhaduinn is mi g'eirigh" and "Gura mise that fo eislean / Ma 's na Righ do luchd-faire" (I believe). Those lines are definitely from Ailein Duinn. But the chorus, as far as I can hear, is not -- in fact, the first few words sound clearly to me as "Ave Maria", maybe "Ave Maria Stella".

Any ideas?

No Ideas? :scratch: :scratch:

Though thanks for some of the information though, because I didn't know half of it. It's confusing the words, what is the actual language she is speaking? I really like the music so thank for posting this thread. :D

It's Gaelic... Scottish Gaelic, I believe. :)
