Program Notes

The title, Immortal Dream, is taken from a verse of the traditional Irish ballad Old Skibereen. This poignant song is full of tragedy and passion, describing the Irish famine of 1846-47. While most of the arrangement is in the minor mode, the second half flirts with a much more uplifting statement of the melody to remind us that there are always things to be thankful for.

- Program Note from score


Skibereen was one of the most severely stricken regions and thousands of people perished. Written by a father to a son, the final three verses of the song had the greatest impact on me.
