Come and sing An Irish Blessing harmonized for 4-part mixed choir, by James E. Moore Jr. :
Is there a need to present this great classic? This work, sung and played on the great solemnities as well as in the simplest moments, is a work of popular origin, words and music.
The lyrics are of great moral comfort when separated from loved ones because they wish the best for the other on his or her path and evoke the reunion to come.
The unforgettable harmonization of James E. Moore Jr. for SATB choir makes it an essential part of any programme,
As indicated in the encore as well as at the end of a first part, It blends in just as well with religious works as with a pop songs performance.
Finally, An Irish Blessing will be very pleasant to work on and will be an asset to the choir members' attendance at rehearsals and to the motivation of the conductors.
You too can adopt or rediscover this song, iconic of the repertoire of many a cappella mixed-voice choirs.
