...in the face of tragedy. Ireland is overrun by English invaders. Henry VIII's cruel edicts were intended to destroy Irish culture. Now his daughter Elizabeth sends spies and soldiers to install alien rulers who bleed Ireland's resources while provoking the clans to fight over the leavings. In these hopeless circumstances an Irish noble girl receives a vision from Saint Brigid-a beautiful melody. Sworn to preserve Gaelic culture, young Caitlin Ni Conor trains as a bard and apprentices to a wise woman. Kate travels Europe as a troubadour in exile, while secretly serving the Irish resistance. Allied with Scots warrio battling the English, Kate becomes a midwife to the creation of the most haunting and romantic of Renaissance ballada,"Greensleeves".
