The Songs of Anúna


The round tower in Clonmacnoise

We first heard and watched Anúna at a performance in Clonmacnoise invited there by a very good friend some years ago and became entranced by them. So much so that the memory of hearing their voices remains so very fresh in our minds still.



I encourage you to listen their voices and then click on 
for more until you are sated !

  1. Beautiful clarity in that voice I must say. I love Irish music.
    One of my favourite folk singers is Christy Moore and my favourite song of his
    is his setting of W B Yeats' poem 'The Song of the Wandering Aongus' - do you know it? (I love Irish poetry also).

  8. As a choirsinger I can really appreciate the effort behind those magical chords. The place in the picture is magical as well, and it's not surprising that these moores, meadows,valleys and structures creates music like that. It is really very different from the whiskyinthejar-tunes, happily, although they have their obvious place.
    How blessed I am to have all these blogfriends in enchanting and interesting settings, sharing their best!
    Thank you, dear Heron!!
