    The outro is most definitely Keening... although I was never able to find any info for that one.I did however find info for the opening Keen which is an untitled lament for a dead child,recorded for a BBC session in 1951 by a guy called Alan Lomax and sung by Kitty Gallagher.

    Thanks a lot Yygdrasill. I've been reading about keening and it's fascinating. Have to agree that the keening is just fantastic, actually.

    The audio is that of an old Irish funerary custom known as "keening" (from the Gaelic "caoineadh" - "to cry"). This was a vocal lament normally sang over the corpse of the deceased by an elderly women in improvised or pre-composed meter. The womans hair would be un-brushed and let hang down over the corpse to symbolise the disarray of death while expressing emotions of grief, loss, bitterness and love. Reference would be made to the deceased person's genealogy, deeds and character and curses could be uttered if there was an identifiable person to blame for the death. The custom, although probably of ancient origin, can be dated to the 8th century and remained an integral part of Irish tradition up until the beginning of the 20th century when centuries of opposition from the church finally succeeded in abolishing it.

    Sounds nothing like Deathspell Omega / First Prayer [2] No idea why so many people here think that. You can feel when you listen to this it's not anything to do with Catholic/Orthodox choral music, it sounds very much improvised and also very primitive (I don't mean that in the common derogatary sense). Any one who finds this 'boring' isn't listening.
