An Irish Blessing  duration - 7' 30"

solo soprano/mezzo and piano

dedicated to Megan Green

This song was composed in April 2010, as a confirmation gift for my friend's daughter.

It has a simple piano accompaniment, with a melodic vocal line, with a slightly modal celtic feel. The text used is the traditional Irish Blessing: "May the road rise up to meet you, may the sun always shine upon your face, may the wind be always at your back, and until we meet again, may the good Lord hold you in the palm of His hand."
