The Sacred three is a 'smooring prayer' said at night before bed, as the peat fire in the house is banked so that it may be revived in the morning. It was collected in the Western Isles of Scotland. In the setting I have tried to capture the peacefulness and quiet of the prayer. In many ways it reminds me of the occasions in my childhood when, with my family, I would visit these islands on sailing holidays.
