Polyphonies Irlandaises

(Code: A135300842)

“I teach musical training and choral singing at several national conservatories and so I’ve worked a lot on traditional and contemporary melodies (jazz, pop, gospel…). That’s how I got the idea of this collection of Irish melodies. It can also be used in music schools for polyphonic practice. I firstly wanted to write teaching arrangements, but I was also able to use it for practice with the vocal ensembles I conduct.
I see this collection as a gate open on Irish music with a wide instrumental and vocal repertoire interpreted with choral practice.
Love is actually a main topic, but there are other themes.
Here are some examples: ‘The rose of Tralee’ doesn’t only deal with a man seduced by the beauty of Mary. The story of ‘The Sally gardens’ is the despair of a young absent-minded fiancé who was in love.
Here are some examples of other themes:
‘O Danny boy’ deals with filial love; the sad story of a son who went to war and did not came back. His father regularly goes to commune with himself on his grave. ‘The minstrel boy’ is the story of a son who inherited his father’s sword to defend his homeland. But he also inherited his harp to share music.
‘The Kerry dancing’ is the story of people dancing to a music played on bagpipes. There is nostalgia.”
