Celtic Woman Performs ‘The Dawning Of The Day’

A group of talented female vocalists turned in an outstanding performance of a lovely folk song.

Folk music is a highly underappreciated genre. It’s not generally the catchiest or the most upbeat music in the world. The lyrics often also tell stories of times that have long since passed. For those reasons, folk music is often not played or heard on the radio. 

However, despite the lack of respect and awareness of folk music, it’s still performed by talented musicians. In a video posted to YouTube, the group Celtic Woman sings the tune “The Dawning of the Day.” All four women in the group are unbelievably gifted, putting their substantial musical talents on full display.

The women, with their spectacular voices, significantly elevate a song with mundane and, frankly, boring lyrics. “The Dawning of the Day” is about a young woman waking up in the morning, going about her day and encountering a man who wishes to marry her.

“A milking pail was in her hand
She was lovely, young and gay
She wore the palm from Venus bright
By the dawning of the day”

However, as great as the vocal performances are, the clip’s visuals are the real star of the video. The video opens with a breathtaking shot of the four women standing on a hilltop as the sunrises behind them. 

From that point forward, viewers get stunning views of the gorgeous landscape. Waves crash on the land, making for a marvelous and picturesque setting. The scenery, at times, appears almost too perfect to be true. 

In addition to the musicians, the landscape, with its crashing waves, bright-blue waters and stunning mountains and hills, is basically another performer in the clip. The scenery enhances the quality of the video considerably. 

Romans 1:20 “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.”
