Celtic Culture Pages

Welcome to my collection of Celtic Pages. I have included holidays, culture and fun. Whether you are of Celtic Heritage or know someone who is, you will find something here to delight. Click on the links and visit the pages I have listed to see the many wonderful aspects of an ancient culture that is alive and thriving today.

Celt (pronounced Kelt, is a modern term used to describe any of the European peoples who spoke, or speak, a Celtic language. The term is also used in a wider sense to describe the modern descendants of those peoples, notably those who participate in a Celtic culture.

May your troubles be less

and your blessings be more

and nothing but happiness

Come through your door

What is Celtic?

Today, the term 'Celtic' is generally used to describe the languages and respective cultures of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, the Isle of Man and Brittany, also known as the Six Celtic Nations. These are the regions where four Celtic languages are still spoken to some extent as mother tongues: Irish Gaelic, Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, and Breton plus two recent revivals, Cornish (one of the Brythonic languages) and Manx (one of the Goidelic languages).

Irish Blessing

Here's to a long life and a merry one.

A quick death and an easy one.

A pretty girl and an honest one.

A cold beer-and another one!

May your blessings outnumber

The Shamrocks that grow,

And may trouble avoid you

Wherever you go.

Celtic Blessing

If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton,

you may as well dance with it

'Tis better to buy a small bouquet

And give to your friend this very day,

Than a bushel of roses white and red

To lay on his coffin after he's dead.

May you always come more than you go.

May you have warm words on a cold evening,

A full moon on a dark night,

And the road downhill all the way to your door.

The seven rejoices of Mary (Anonymous 4 & Andrew Lawrence-King)

Wolcum Yule: Celtic and British Songs and Carols

The 19 selections include traditional folk melodies and texts in this offbeat disc of seasonal songs and carols will delight the fans of Anonymous 4 and please everyone else. Some of the tunes on this album date back to the Middle Ages, interspersed with fitting selections by contemporary composers. including Maxwell Davies ethereal a cappella A Calender of Kings.

"The disc is crammed with highlight tracks, like the lilting Cornish Wassail song and the Irish Good people all, and haunting numbers like "Flight into Egypt," sung in Gaelic, and "Behold, here is the best morning," sung in Welsh."

"Harmonia Mundi's typically fine production values also help make this a Christmas disc that will give joy in July." --Dan Davis

"The musicality and the pitch is impeccable...These women research, arrange and perform historic pieces that present programs in a set time period. Lovely, just lovely. As a musician, I find no fault with this compilation." ~S. Franklin
