Program Notes

Commissioned by and dedicated to the Western International Band Clinic.

Warren Barker has taken this ancient Irish lullaby and developed it into an absolutely gorgeous piece. Images of leprechauns abound as the arranger combines lush harmonies and lilting melodies with subtle charm and explores the full spectrum of tonal colors.
