song for an Advent weekend: Oíche Chiúin

In the midst holiday preparations, take a bit of time for quiet reflection on the season. Whether Irish is your language or not, I think you will recognize the song.

Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, and Eleanor Shanley sing
Oíche Chiúin from Geantraí na Nollag, broadcast in Ireland on TG4 at Christmas 2010

Beautiful. Silent Night is one of those songs that just calms me down every time I hear it. Also love the Mannheim Steamroller version.

This is lovely. And the pints of ale in the video make it pretty realistic!
