Who Really Discovered North
|The sixth-century voyage of St. Brendan to America is
the most fascinating of sea legends. Could the myth, of an Irish monk
and his crew sailing across the Atlantic in a boat made of leather,
nearly a thousand years before Columbus, have been reality?
In pursuit of a legend, Tim Severin staked the lives of himself
and his four companions on following the exact methods used by the
seafaring Irish monks in constructing and sailing their vessel from
the West coast of Ireland across the Atlantic Ocean to Newfoundland.
Persuasive proof of the validity of the Brendan myth, Severin's
hazardous expedition remains a supreme testament to the resilience
of the voyaging spirit in some of the most hostile conditions known
THE CD (TARACD
The Brendan Voyage music is a suite for orchestra and Irish (uilleann)
Pipes played by soloist Liam O'Flynn
and based on the book by Tim Severin. The
uilleann pipes represent the boat and carry the listener before
the wind, through ferocious gales, over gigantic waves, through
floating pillars of ice... evoking the journey from a small Kerry
harbour to the Faroes, the cliffs of Mykines, to Iceland, the freezing
waters of Labrador and finally, to safe harbour in Newfoundland.
Tara can now offer special discounted corporate rates
for bulk purchases of this unique and beautifully boxed book and the accompanying
soundtrack CD depicting this fascinating voyage.
