Audio files for A Circle of Stones

Over the years, one of the things I've had the most requests for has been a series of audio files for the prayers in A Circle of Stones: Journeys & Meditations for Modern Celts. It's never been anything I would be that good at. My pronunciation sucks and I wouldn't want to inflict it on anyone.

Last year, I was able to talk Caera into doing the files. She's been through a lot of stress this year and has had to move several times, but she's finally had the time to put together audio files for the book. She speaks fluent Irish, and enough Gaelic to be able to do some justice to the prayers. She's produced an album of audio files to go with the second edition of CoS, which is now available on BandCamp.

All the money for these audio files goes to Caera, in thanks for her work on the project and for her editing of the second edition of the book. I'm very grateful to her for making this available to you. Please pass the word far and wide. And while you're at her BandCamp store, please check out her music, as well! Caera is an accomplished harper who plays a medieval wire-strung Celtic harp, and she has a really lovely soprano voice. On her various CDs, she sings in Irish, Scots Gaelic, Manx, and Welsh, as well as a little English.

You know you want to.


  1. So I have the old edition of Circle of Stones, and I bought the audio files, but I had a few questions.

    1)The audio file for "Inner Flame" seems drastically different from what's written in my book. Is it just because I have the wrong edition?

    2) The audio file for "Eternal Sea" appears to be another copy of "Endless Sky". Is there any way for me to get that fixed?

    1. The second edition had some of the Irish and Gaelic corrected, so the audio file matches the second edition. As to the duplicated sound file, please contact Caera through the site where you got the file. I'll talk to her this weekend if I see her, but she'll need to know about this so she can correct it. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!
