Music which gets under the skin

Thrilled by a choral version in traditional Irish Folk

Some music just touches people within a few seconds: this so-called goosebumps moment often requires only a concise melody, a harmony between singing and accompaniment or a sung phrase, which mirrors the inner soul.

Also the following choral version of "Mo Ghille Mear" (engl. My Gallant Hero) has a big potential for giving one goosebumps. The piece is composed in the style of traditional Irish Folk and performed by the "Choral Scholars of University College Dublin".

Lean back and enjoy the Irish voices!
