In an earlier thread we were discussing music that connects spiritually with us. I mentioned that Middle Eastern and Native American music connects with me. Other music that will do that to me is Celtic music, particularly Irish music. One of my absolutely favorite CDs is "A Celtic Tale" by Mychael and Jeff Danna, which is based on the Irish tale of Deirdre of the Sorrows. My computer's CD-ROM is shot, so since I can't play CDs on it, I look for music on YouTube to bookmark. I was looking for music from "A Celtic Tale" on YouTube and came across this. Someone put on the story of Deirdre being told by an Irish woman, while using the music from "A Celtic Tale" as the soundtrack. I thought that I would share it with everyone here on the board:

I like wiccan (? not sure if it's specifically wiccan but close) music like "may the circle be unbroken" and "the burning times"...but this song is spiritual to me for some reason:
