Under the Shelter

Written during the covid pandemic lockdown when community felt really important to my own survival. A friend sent me an instagram post by Alex Synge of a poster on Instagram of Irish Gaelic ‘Is ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine’ and its translation ‘Under the shelter of each other people survive‘.


Powerful, grounded


4 part harmony with Bass as the lead. However, it sings very nicely with just the top 3 parts.
