PEACE


The long and waving line of the blue hills

Makes rhythmical the twilight, no sharp peak

Pierces the kind air with a rough-hewn will

To storm the sky, no soaring mountains seek

To break the melody of the flowing line,

But the hills wander on in a long wave,

And all the while invisible stars shine

Over the sea and the white cairn of Maeve.

Eva Gore-Booth (1870 - 1926)


PEACE is the second of three pieces that I wrote for the UCD (University College Dublin) ChoralScholars, directed by Desmond Earley. This Irish Trilogy centers on three key elements: War, Peaceand 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 thisbeautiful verse: And all the while invisible stars shine Over the sea and the white cairn of Maeve. With mymusic I've tried to describe the sense of peace that this gifted poet must have felt while experiencingsuch a wonderful landscape.
