in music

“The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” is a 1957 folk song written by political singer/songwriter Ewan MacColl for Peggy Seeger, who was later to become his wife. At the time the couple were lovers, although MacColl was married to someone else.

Here you can hear how the song changed in fifty years.

Paul Mounsey – Passing Away

Gaelic (sung)
Mo chùl ri d chùl gun dùil ri tilleadh,
Mo bheul ri d bheul s na deòir a sileadh.

English Translation…
My back to your back and no hope of return,
My face to your face and tears flowing.

Spoken English:
Our Literature is beautiful,
Our history is as good as any history in Europe,
And, it makes a person sad when, you see it all passing away…
And there’s nothing one can do to stop it.
Gaelic’s on the decline,
Gaelic’s on the decline.

Gaelic (sung)
Mu thimchioll fòs Ierusaleim, dhòirt iad am fuil mar uisg’.

Tha do rioghachd làn do ghlòir, is móralachd faraon innt’,
‘S math dha’n fheadhainn bhios ri ‘g òl a cuaintean mór do ghaol-sa,
Bidh compàirt ac’ ann am Pàras ‘s cha bhi sgàil air aodann.

English Translation
Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem. (Psalm 79)

Thy Kingdom is full of glory and majesty;
Happy are those who drink from the great ocean of Thy love;
They will have a share in Paradise, where no face will be shadowed.

Spoken English:
First the Romans came across,
They were savages in the south of England,
And they educated them.
They came as far up here as Perth
But I’m damned if they could conquer the boys up here!
Never, never, never

Psalm & Solo

Spoken English:
I think the Bards keep the language going,
And the day they go, goes our language, goes our heritage,
Goes our identity, our identity, our identity..
The ruination of the Highlands.

Gaelic
Leannan a bh’agam o thùs
Nighean na mealadh ‘s na meall shùil.

English Translation
I came for a sweetheart I had long ago,
A honey-sweet girl with beguiling eyes.

Come on Baby, come on Baby

It makes a person sad when, you see it all passing away…
Passing away, passing away, passing away, passing away…
