What a beautiful offering. As a singer and composer myself, I now have a deeper understanding of why people, including me, resonate so much with my music. It's not the song. Will most certainly watch this again, for the experience itself and for inspiration. Thank you.

WELL WHAT do I spy with my wee eye?

Go raibh maith agat; THANK you for choosing to stock this title. I'd not known of it prior.

Am excited to view this offering!

I worked with an intense and highly unique creative group in Poland YEARS ago, called Song of the Goat Theatre. The director Grzegorz Bral taught us this beautiful and visceral technique of body polyphony.
Yes, it was amazing!

They went on to be recognised in various accolades thru the years, from what I made out..

Imagine my surprise and inspiration when .. a lifetime later.. a production emerged from Grzegorz called, "Return To The Voice" ... involving a pilgrimage to the Isle of Skye, Isle of Lewis, and Isle of Harris (Scotland) .. finding the old singers, the old songs, songs of the land, and of times long bygone...
I mention it only because as soon as I saw the image for "In Search of The Great Song", it totally and absolutely brought "Return to the Voice" up, in my mind and psyche! .. so I mention it also because it might be of interest ?

I would so love to ask my Choir director if it would be suitable for a group viewing (he shared Jordan Peterson's views on Art with us, for 10 mins of last rehearsal!)

And let me tell you right now:
Am only expecting Inspiration and Wonder to emerge from after watching the Great Song .... !!!

Tapadh leat,
