Poems, prayers and songs for St Patrick’s Day

Roddy Cowie

Digital download: Poems, prayers and songs for St Patrick’s Day. 

In his introduction Roddy Cowie says, ‘Patrick was a poet and orator with a mighty gift. He could present images without frills or explanations, but chosen and expressed so that they shine out in the mind’s eye, and the links between them need no explanation. There is a powerful sense of sound too – read aloud, or sung … I hope these pieces help you to hear tones in Patrick’s voice that are not already familiar.’

Contents:
Christ be with me (from Saint Patrick’s breastplate)
From Patrick’s Letter to the soldiers of Coroticus
The cry of the deer
