Enjoy an Evening Concert by Songs of Ireland.
Áine Mulvey (Mezzo-Soprano) and Anne-Marie O’Farrell (harp) present “Songs of Ireland” at the Irish Cultural Center in Phoenix, Arizona, as part of the “I am Ireland” cultural event marking the centenary of the 1916 Rising.
The programme explores both traditional repertoire and Art Songs that grew out of a attempt to define a Nationalist culture that was uniquely Irish. The concerts will include music by the early Irish blind harper, Turlough O’Carolan; folk songs collected by Thomas Moore; and more recent Art Songs and contemporary music which explore different aspects of Ireland’s national identity.
The programme includes a number of pieces which particularly reference the 1916 Rising, including settings of poems by the revolutionary Joseph Mary Plunkett, executed by firing squad just 7 hours after marrying his sweetheart; the very moving setting of Padraig Pearse’s poem “The Mother”, by T.C. Kelly, and the traditional air “Róisín Dubh” (or “Dark Rose”, an appellation used for Ireland), which inspired Sean O’Riada’s “Mise Éire” (I am Ireland) score for a 1960s film commemorating the Rising.
Supported by Culture Ireland as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme.
