The Seven Joys of Mary

Áine Minogue

Áine’s latest single is now available on all your favorite downloading and streaming services. “The Seven Joys of Mary” was co-produced with Jon Evans (Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan) and features Minogue's vocals and Irish harp, Evan’s multi instrumental chops and a host of acoustic stars from folk, classical and jazz including Irish phenom, Séamus Egan (Brothers McMullen, Solás), Billy Novick (Great Gatsby), Vermont cello hero, Eugene Friesen, (Paul Winter Consort) as well as the soulful singing of Alasdair Halliday.

This beautiful song is an old Gaelic song written from the perspective of Mary as she recounts the joys her son has brought her from his birth to his story of the Holy Book from his willingness to save the world. It belongs to a small, yet beloved cache of Irish religious songs in the Irish language that are still sung today.
