Program Notes

An Irish Rhapsody

Clare Grundman, composer

An Irish Rhapsody by Clare Grundman is a setting for symphonic band containing six songs of Ireland. First is "The Moreen" (also called "The Minstrel Boy"), then the ballad, "I Know Where I'm Going," followed by the typical jig tune, "Shepherd’s Lamb Reel." The well-loved "Cockles and Mussels" precedes the spirited "The Rakes of Mallow," which in turn leads into the love song "Kathleen O'More." The coda returns to "Cockles and Mussels."
