This is another very fine work by this very talented composer. It relates the story of one of the most “colourful” characters in early Irish history, Grace O’Malley, and her exploits and adventures. It is well worth reading up on Grace as it will also be very worth your time listening to this ingenious and engaging work. It is an orchestrated work with occasional uilleann pipes and its musical language is modern but is based on the traditional Irish music idiom. It is a great vocal and musical story. It was written for the voice of Rita Connolly and she is superb in her interpretation and performance.
