Composer Notes on this Irish Music

Delicate harp starts this track with a lighthearted and soft tin whistle melody.

When I wrote this tune I was inspired by Irish traditional slow airs which have a sombre and reflective tone. 

This tune builds from its soft introduction of harp and wistful tin whistle with powerful war drums and sweeping uilleann pipes.

I imagine a band of ancient Celtic warriors, standing on an open and vast landscape, travelling forward to distant lands.

The uilleann pipes add a majestic feeling to this tune. Combined with the dominant war drums, there is a feeling that something important is about to happen.

The drums build to a strong melody with varied percussion and sweeping orchestral underscore. 

I chose a different style of percussion for this track which, you could argue,  moves the genre from Irish traditional to Celtic. 

The music concludes with a soft outro of sweeping strings and light harp that indicates a happy ending and that these Celts achieved success – perhaps they even found their new home.
