Here is the text that we’ll be singing at the flash mob. This first bit comes from 9th century Irish monastic poetry and the 2nd bit comes from the 5th century and is attributed to St. Columba. The music is a combo of original music and the Irish fiddle tune ‘Ships are Sailing’
East and by North
Send thine eyes forth
Over waves with great whales foaming,
Where sportive seals
Dance their wild reels
Through mighty flood-tides roaming.
He who tramples on the world
He tramples on himself.
