Iiiiii oooooo nnnnnaaaaaa…Peace of Iona

Peace Of Iona – The Waterboys (2003) FLAC Audio 1080p Video ~MetalGuruMessiah~

“Peace Of Iona” was released in the spring of 2003 on The Waterboys’ eighth studio album, Universal Hall. This is another one of my very favorite tracks by The Waterboys.

I’d always planned to do a video for this track one day, but hadn’t started anything for it yet and it’s here now really because “Church Not Made With Hands” is one of many of my old videos that I’m working on updates for, and while I was chipping away at it, I started to find things that seemed perfect for “Peace of Iona”….jumped into it and found it was a quick work, mainly because the hypnotic/repetitive nature of the song let me do what I have a tendency (and love!) to do anyway….repetitive and subtle variations on an effect! I really love how this one turned out….mainly due to the fact that this song it a stunner, hypnotic, gorgeously produced and performed, and one of the best examples of the dynamic structure of the song that The Waterboys (and Mike Scott in particular) are such masters at creating.

As always HUGE THANKS to everyone who’s art made this new art possible…THANK YOU!!!!

Universal Hall is a 2003 album released by The Waterboys. It is named after the theatre and performance hall at the Findhorn Foundation, which is pictured on the album cover. The album shows much more influence from folk music than its predecessor, A Rock in the Weary Land. It is the first Waterboys album to feature Steve Wickham since Room to Roam, and therefore the first Waterboys album with all three core members of the post-reunion band.

Mike Scott describes the album as a “record containing one Irish reel and eleven spiritual songs that articulate – to the best of my ability – the vision that drives, challenges, sustains and transforms me”.

[Lyrics]
Peace of the glancing dancing waves
Peace of the white sands
Peace of Iona

Peace of the singing winds
Peace of the stones
Peace of Iona

Iiiiii oooooo nnnnnaaaaaa

Peace of the crying gulls
Peace of the humming bees
Peace of the noon-time stillness

Peace of the dreaming hills
Peace of the breath of angels
Peace of Iona

Iiiiii oooooo nnnnnaaaaaa
Iiiiii oooooo nnnnnaaaaaa

Peace of the saints and seekers
Peace of the monks and Druids
Peace of the resting place of kings

Peace of the ruins
Peace of the doves in the bell tower
Peace of Iona

Iiiiii oooooo nnnnnaaaaaa
Iiiiii oooooo nnnnnaaaaaa

Peace of the rested mind
Peace of the glad heart
Peace of my lover’s pots and potions

Peace of her healing hands
Peace of her lazy laughter
Peace of Iona

(4x)
Peace of the unseen
Peace of the spirit
Peace of Iona

Iiiiii oooooo nnnnnaaaaaa
Iiiiii oooooo nnnnnaaaaaa
Iiiiii oooooo nnnnnaaaaaa
Iiiiii oooooo nnnnnaaaaaa
