The Irish Girl

Set in the Dorian mode, The Irish Girl is full of longing and melancholy; it speaks of a true love separated by great distances. Since the verse form is repeated several times, dynamic contrast is essential in maintaining interest. The piano provides a fluid, almost guitar-like texture that should help provide forward momentum. Resist the temptation to over sing the forte sections at m45 and particularly at m70 as the piece should maintain a thoughtful and elegant quality throughout. Although set for TTB voices, many passages feature only two parts; make sure that the bass part is adequately balanced throughout the piece.
