See "End to Mystery Language II" where Lisa Gerrard and Hans Zimmer state that this is a "made up language" where Lisa "talks to God." It is in the language of the soul, which we all, on some level, recognize. Amen.

Dear Shane,

Thanks for your post:


I posted a request for an English translation after reading this, but then came across another post called: “End to Mystery Language” and gave this website for an interview with Lisa Garraud stating she “makes it up, it is her own language...” or words to that effect. I haven’t read the interview yet, but perhaps she is referring to other songs.

What you said about “Now We Are Free” as a song about freedom of the Irish from the British makes more sense, and the fact that Triniti has also recorded it. I hope I can get a chance to listen to their version as well.

My grandfather and his brothers all came here from Ireland and I would love to know more. Any info would be appreciated.

Yours, Catherine Todd,
