Songs for an Easter weekend

A season of change, this time of year, no matter in what part of the world you find yourself. Also a season on holy days marking this, and calling for contemplation. Here's a song from Kathleen MacInnes, who sings in Scottish Gaelic. Along with it are photographs of South Uist in Scotland's Outer Hebrides. MacInnes' song is called Oran Dhomnaill Phadraig and is a tribute to her father. Take a look at the music in the other links, below, too -- good companions all for a reflective weekend.
