Of Dúlamán, the Choral Scholars say: “Dúlamán is a traditional working song from the north of Ireland, made famous in the 1970s by the legendary Irish group Clannad.”

“The word ‘dúlamán’ means ‘seaweed’, and the song references two types, one for dyeing and one that is edible. These two types of seaweed also represent two different characters in the song.”

The Choral Scholars of University College Dublin has released a new album entitled Perpetual Twilight, which features their recording of Dúlamán, as well as their versions of Danny Boy, My Love is like a Red Red Rose, and Mo Ghille Mear (My Gallant Hero).

The new album is available for purchase online.

Choral director Dr. Desmond Earley recently told public radio's New Classical Tracks: "Song is central to the Irish musical imagination."

"A glimpse at Irish history would reveal a whole catalog of songs exploring themes of loss, happiness, and emigration.”

This week, the talented Irish choir is heading stateside ahead of St. Patrick’s Day to perform their show 'Imagine Ireland: Songs of Home' at several New York City venues including the world-renowned Carnegie Hall on March 15.
