Description

An Irish Blessing, a choral arrangment of a much-loved Gaelic blessing, has a gentle, lilting melody which unfolds slowly, beginning in unison and building to a fuller choral texture with a descant by the third verse. The optional flute part adds a folk-like quality and, in addition to the wide dynamic range indicated, further textural variety can be achieved with opportunities for a soloist or small group of singers. This arrangment was commissioned by Rydes Hill Preparatory School, Guildford in 2005, in the year of its Diamond Jubilee. It would equally suit a wedding, a church service, any leaving celebration or a concert programme. The Faber Choral Signature Series introduces a wealth of new or recently written choral music to choirs in search of fresh repertoire. The series draws in a rich diversity of living composers and includes both lighter and more challenging contemporary works, offering a thrilling array of varied styles.
