Dew Drop, Dedicated to Jale Özdemir

Saudade, Dedicated to anonymous

Ajna, Dedicated to Nancy Costello, Kathleen Legg, Diane Croughan, Marie Slattery, Marian Gambold, Steven O’Riordan and of course Shep! Inspired by the heart-wrenching story of five women who were confined in Magdalene Laundries in Ireland during the 1950s, 60s and 70s. ‘Whispering Hope’.

McBeth, (for Madeleine McCann)

Tuning is 6th string D and 5th string G while a top C (first string) is needed for this piece. The opening church bell effect is achieved by crossing over the 2nd and 3rd strings at the VII fret and underlines Kate McCann’s Catholic devotion. There are 7 bells in total each representing the seven friends of the McCann’s. The title of the piece comes from Madeleine McCann’s middle name Bethany. As this story is a tragedy the title is a combination of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Beth(any) and Mc(Cann) hence McBeth.

Please don’t take my sunshine away referenced at the beginning and throughout the piece was a song that Kate McCann regularly sung to her daughter.

 Fast scale-like passages in the middle section (ligados) represent the frantic running up and down stairs and a sense of loss and chaos. They ascend and descend and shorten and in effect crash into each other while resolving into a harking back to the theme Please don’t take my sunshine away.

At this point the music is deliberately cheerful (as is the opening), good humoured and ‘innocent’. The entire piece is meant to be a vivid reminder that however all this unfolded there is still an innocent child missing. This piece is simply written to highlight the fact that a human being - a child - went missing, as do thousands every day. What these children experience and how tragic it all is, is central to this music. There is no intention to finger point as to who or what went wrong but just simply celebrate a ‘life’ even if lost.

The Holocaust Suite, Dedicated to Victor Breitburg, Holocaust survivor.

Corona, Dedicated to Stephanie Farrell

Sahaswara, Dedicated to Adam Farrell
