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.
Almighty, eternal, just and merciful God,
grant us in our littleness [the grace] to do for You alone
what we know You want us to do,
And always to desire what pleases You.
Thus, inwardly cleansed, interiorly enlightened
and inflamed by the fire of the Holy Spirit,
may we be able to follow
in the footprints of Your beloved Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ.
And, by Your grace alone,
may we make our way to You, Most High,
Who live and rule in perfect Trinity and simple Unity,
and are glorified God all-powerful forever and ever.
