The Banshee is a well-known myth/tradition, known to every Irish person. Her name is, literally, 'woman fairy', and her haunting wail (perhaps derived from some sound of the wind on a stormy night) was believed to be a harbinger of death, which means that she should in fact precede the battle.

However, if someone had already died, and the banshee was heard, it was believed more death was to come, and if that is the intended message, it is deep and subtle indeed. The sound of the Banshee was closely linked with the sighting of the 'will-o-the-wisp' a phenomenon of marsh gas that appears as a misty white 'wisp' floating above the bog, and that is perhaps alluded to in the presentation of the Banshee here, with her white gown and the mists of dry ice around her.

This is a traditional Irish melody from unknown origin and was originally written for celtic instruments.
