06 Calling Seals 3:20 min – track sample


SKU: N/A Category:


n this unusual interpretation, John Purser sings a seal song. The song is in an unknown language (possibly old Norse), and is believed to be the oldest surviving in Scotland. Tradition says that it tells the story of a seal who had become a man or selkie and was now going back to be a seal again. He sings as the seals on the shore call him back to the sea.

John Purser – vocal
Phil Conyngham – didgeridoo
Simon O’Dwyer – psalter horn
Recorded at St. John’s, Newfoundland
Rod Callan – mastering, post mastering at ‘The Works’ studio, Dublin, Ireland, May 2002
