Song of the Wind / Amhrán na Gaoithe - new work by Michael McGlynn

Choir type: Chamber Choirs and Vocal Ensembles
Voicing: Mixed
I have just made my "Song of the Wind / Amhrán na Gaoithe" available from my website as sheet music HERE.
 
"Song of the Wind / Amhrán na Gaoithe" was commissioned in 2012 by Chanticleer, and is set for SSATBB [you can see a performance below by Anúna]. It explores a sound-world inspired by tales from the off-shore islands of melodic fragments that were heard by fishermen and their families.
 
These fragments of melody were called "Port na bPucaí" (Ghost Melodies), and their strains have entered the vocabulary of Irish traditional music. This work explores some of these fragments, developing them into the mythology that urrounds the stories of the Siren song. This work featured as part of Chanticleer's 2012 - 2013 with its companion work "Hinbarra" and the ubiquitous "Dúlamán".
