Program Notes

The well-known and touching Irish ballad Danny Boy forms the basis of this emotionally charged setting by Richard Saucedo. A true study in orchestration and textures, this piece begins quietly at first, then builds steadily to a full ensemble climax before returning to a soft and delicate close.
