AOIFE is from Gweedore in Co. Donegal. The traditional feel of 'Calm the Soul' needed the haunting sound that Aoife brings to so many of the traditional Irish songs that she sings. She has produced a number of albums, has toured and performed in the US, Japan, Europe and has recorded with other artists in various musical genres. It was lovely to meet her during the summer when she travelled to Galway to record the first verse of the song.
Praised be You, my Lord, through those who give pardon for Your love,
and bear infirmity and tribulation.
Blessed are those who endure in peace
for by You, Most High, shall they be crowned.
Praised be You, my Lord, through our Sister Bodily Death,
from whom no one living can escape.
Woe to those who die in mortal sin.
Blessed are those whom death will find in Your most holy will,
for the second death shall do them no harm.
Praise and bless my Lord and give Him thanks
and serve Him with great humility.
Canticle of the Creatures by St. Francis
