Program Notes

I've always loved the text commonly known as "An Irish Blessing". A few years ago, I set text for SATB chorus, and here have transformed it for band. It is designed to be a gentle meditation on the road rising to meet you and the elements supporting you in life:

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
