Inspired by the Stephen R. Lawhead novel, “Patrick - Son of Ireland”

A Bhuachaill Uasal,
A Bhuachaill Uasal,
Tar ag súil in rár measc arís!

Noble Boy,
Noble Boy,
Come walk among us again!

In the fading years of the fourth century, Britain was enjoying the last twilight of a golden age. There was peace and plenty, and easy wealth through trade for its favored citizens. But the ancient world was teetering the brink of cataclysm. On every border the empire was under barbarian attack. One man who lived through those tumultuous times was Succat of Morgannwg, better known to us as Saint Patrick.

Born the son of a noble British family, he was seized by Irish warriors in a midnight raid and sold as a slave to an Irish king. Patrick spent seven years in slavery – hungry, cold, often alone – yearning for release. His successful escape made him unique. His triumphant return made him a legend.

Here is music that captures the spirit behind Patrick’s life and faith. Jeff Johnson and Brian Dunning take their listeners on a journey filled with the wonder, mystery and beauty which hearken back to times, places and people long past, but not forgotten.
