An Irish Blessing
Arr. Alexander L'Estrange and Joanna Forbes L'Estrange
Faber Edition: Choral Signature Series
Piano & Opt. Flute
An Irish Blessing, a choral arrangement of a much-loved Gaelic blessing, has a gentle, lilting melody which unfolds slowly, beginning in unison and building to a fuller choral texture with a descant by the third verse. The optional flute part adds a folk-like quality and, in addition to the wide dynamic range indicated, further textural variety can be achieved with opportunities for a soloist or small group of singers.
The Faber Choral Signature Series introduces a wealth of new or recently written choral music to choirs in search of fresh repertoire. The series draws in a rich diversity of living composers and includes both lighter and more challenging contemporary works, offering a thrilling array of varied styles.
