Listen to a haunting 112-year-old Irish lullaby

A still from the 'Gartan Mother's Lullaby' video UCD

The Choral Scholars of University College Dublin performs a gorgeous Irish lullaby that dates from 1904.

"The Gartan Mother's Lullaby" was included in an early-20th-century collection of ballads collected in northern Ireland. The song's lyrics make reference to fairies and Gaelic mythology.

Hear the song below, accompanied by a charming stop-motion video. If it puts you in the mood for more music like it, click on YourClassical's Lullabies stream.
