Subject: Re: Deirdre & St Patrick's Lorica
Can anybody direct me to the Irish text underlying the C F Alexander English hymn called "St Patrick's Breastplate" or "St Patrick's Lorica"? To the tune it's sung in in Irish? To the traditional words sung to the interpolated tune "Deirdre" (the "Christ be with me, Christ within me" stanza that is normally given as the next-to-last verse of the Alexander hymn)? To any other pertinent details, discussion of origins, scholarly takes on Patrician provenance, etc., etc.?
