This enchanting folk song from the Isle of man was collected in Peel by Mona Douglas and arranged by Fenella Bazin.
The women of Peel would sing this song as their men sailed out to the fishing. It is an incantation to the Gods of the Sea to bring the fishermen safely back home again. A thousand thanks to Colin jerry of Peel, Isle of man for generously helping me with Manx pronunciations and translations.
