The long and waving line of the blue hills
PEACE is the second of three pieces that I wrote for the UCD (University College Dublin) Choral
Scholars, directed by Desmond Earley. This “Irish Trilogy” centers on three key elements: War, Peace
and Aimhirgin. This setting for mixed choir and oboe is taken from a beautiful poem by Eva Gore–
Booth. I found this text quite magical and enchanting; it speaks of vast expanses, closing with this
beautiful verse: And all the while invisible stars shine Over the sea and the white cairn of Maeve. With my
music I've tried to describe the sense of peace that this gifted poet must have felt while experiencing
such a wonderful landscape.
