Tumult in Clouds

This is Yeats’ poem, An Irish Airman Foresees His Death, set to music by Ela Orleans. I’ve always liked this poem, to the point of memorising it, but the music video gives it an extra wallop.

Thanks be to KILTR, a brilliant Scottish online community, for the original posting. I’d never have seen it otherwise.
