This piece was composed thanks to the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Ireland, who gave me the opportunity to be Composer in Residence. The piece is a setting of an Irish folk song text, and tells of the beauty of the lake in different seasons. At the Tyrone Guthrie Centre there is a lake, and I chose this piece because I wanted to focus my composition on nature, and the beauty of the lake. I composed the melody and this arrangement for a friend, Gitta Green's string quartet.
Instrumentation: Medium/high voice, 2 violins, viola, cello.
Duration: 3 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — Range of vocal part and various time signature changes.
- Inspired by: Irish folk music
