Today, at the Brigid of Faughart Festival, I attended a lovely singing workshop with Noirin Ni Riain who is a wonderful singer in the traditional Irish style, and a world recognised teacher and expert in Gregorian Chant as sung by the monks at Glenstal Abbey in the West of Ireland. She actually lives at the monastery and continues her studies of the Celtic Church and its music.
Here is Noirin singing Ode to Brigid.
I learned today that Imbolc is the time of new beginnings - when we sow the seeds for the coming year.
I came away with lots of ideas and plans. Now I just need to sit down and put some of them into action. And the first of these is to catch up with all the lovely new people who came to my blog from last week's party. It's been such a busy week and I've only managed to visit about two thirds yet. So this week, I promise to get by and say hello.
Are you starting anything new at this time of year? You know I love to hear.
Have a wonderful week.
