You have to check out this beautiful music video for the song ‘The Parting Glass’ from Celtic Woman.

“Of all the money that e'er I had I spent it in good company, and all the harm that e'er I did
Alas, it was to none but me, and all I've done for want of wit to memory now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass, goodnight, and joy be to you all, so fill to me the parting glass
And gather as the evening falls and gently rise and softly call goodnight and joy be to you all.”

This stunning music video is from Celtic Woman’s “Postcards From Ireland” DVD. The singers and musicians are seen in the breathtaking scenery of Ireland while they are singing the lovely Irish folk song. It really is a sight to behold and heavenly to listen to!

The history of The Parting Glass is associated with gatherings in the Celtic lands. At the end of gatherings, friends will typically sing songs. And the gathering usually provides departing guests with a drink as they’re leaving. This custom was so popular back in the day that it formed the basis for the song ‘The Parting Glass.’

‘The Parting Glass’ is a great example of that special quality found in the best farewell songs. The song is able to combine joy and sorrow in a way that is both sad yet uplifting at the same time. It is a song of farewell, sung for and to close friends. And the Irish folk song comes with a parting toast: Good night, and joy be with you all. Now that is a way to say farewell!

Celtic Women do what they do best in this music video and that’s combine the beautiful music of Ireland with their mesmerizing voices to create some truly musical magic. We hope that you enjoyed listening to their rendition of ‘The Parting Glass’ today!
