Music from the 80s — Clannad, ‘Turning Tide’

I have loved Clannad for many years, the family of musicians from County Donegal in the north west of the Irish Republic. They are most notable for singing folk songs in their native Irish tongue, though not exclusively.

This song comes from their 1987 album ‘Sirius’, probably one of their most ‘commercial’ albums, with some really gorgeous tunes, including this one, ‘Turning Tide’; it speaks volumes to me now all these years later — especially the symbolism and imagery, so appropriate to what is going on in our world at present. Take note of the lyrics.
