A brosnachadh - Gaelic - (pronounced roughly brah-znuh-hug) is an incitement to battle. It is an ancient piece of music, a call to courage for warriors prior to battle. It was played on the harp as an accompaniment to the bard whose purpose was to take the men on an exploration of specific emotions in preparation for battle: the crith-gaisge, nervous excitement at gathering together for the battle, and the mir-cath, delight at the coming opportunity to attain valor and victory. The specific music from the harp likely aided the bard's memory as he recited the poem. This video tribute explores the timelessness of the brosnachadh as we consider its purpose in 2001 as America felt the need for a call to courage in the wake of the attacks on September 11.
