For the day that’s in it, a great version of the Lorica, “The Deer’s Cry”;
“The Deer’s Cry”, attributed to St Patrick, is known by several names: “The Breastplate of St Patrick” and “Lorica” to mention two. It is a beautiful prayer celebrating a God who lives with his children, guiding them, sheltering them, strengthening them. A God who is with us and in us through his Creation. In 1994 Irish composer Shaun Davey put a section of the Breastplate to some wonderful music in his CD “The Pilgrim”. It is wonderfully sung by Rita Connolly. If you like Celtic music you will treasure this CD. This video attempts to enhance Shaun Davey’s music with some relevant images.
