Product details

I wrote this piece just before I left to speak at a music conference "Composition in the 21st Century", at Trinity College, Dublin. I had been reading about modern Irish composers and listening to Celtic music. Sir Harrison Birtwistle was the keynote speaker at the conference, and I was reading a book about his music and this led me to move out of traditional song form. The piece also shares harmonies inspired by the struggle of the Catholics in Northern Ireland. I also feature a little birdsong motif to lighten the piece up.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (5p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced — Includes modern harmonies.

Duration: 3 mins

This is a handwritten edition — it is not typeset.
