A poem called " Folk Song" written by Paddy Doyle and read by Ronan O Snodaigh. These lovely words have some how ended up in my lap, and somehow consolidated, supported and affirmed this piece of music thats been floating around for a while.
Having written and recorded a choral piece during the summer, i was left with something i could not complete. It got the better of me.
A few weeks back i decided to take part one of three of this composition and experiment with some new piano bits.
It wasnt untill i put these lovely words on top of it that it all made sense. To me at least.
Hopefully the other two parts will come together as serendipitously.
Thank you Paddy and Ronan and to Colm for the help with the words as Gaeilge
The words for the choral piece are,
Níl ach ní amhain i lathair anseo
is grá é
