Program Notes

You'll want to close your eyes and envision the lush beauty of the Irish countryside when you hear the opening sounds of this beautiful theme. Warm harmonies are scored to sound rich and full and certainly add to the appeal of this very expressive work. Emotionally uplifting, this heartfelt ballad touches all the right buttons.

- Program Note from publisher

Leprechauns, castles, good luck, and laughter,
Lullabies, dreams and love ever after,
Poems and songs with pipes and drums,
A thousand welcomes when anyone comes ... That's the Irish for you!

Dedicated to George Edge for his 35 years of service to music education in the state of Ohio.
