Program Notes

Commissioned by the Cabarrus All-County Middle School Band (Concord, North Carolina), this work was inspired by the composer's Irish heritage and the rich history of Ireland. With three main themes, this programmatic work opens with a peaceful sunrise with mist rising from the bog. The second theme describes the great hall of a majestic medieval castle complete with vibrant colors and pageantry. The exciting "battle" theme follows and ultimately resolves to a return of the earlier themes.
