Re Soundings – Iona Research

A welcome interruption to filming came in the form of two visitors to the chapel who asked if we would mind them singing, as we worked. They broke into a haunting rendition of a Shetlandic boat song, a “stormy sea song” as they described it, sung in Norn. Norn was a 6th century Scandinavian language spoken in Shetland up until the 18th/19th Century. A serendipitous moment having this sung alongside the 6th century bell.
