NOW DEAD POET, PHILIP CASEY, ON HIS COMPOSER COUSIN, ME IN 2017

I know this is from last year, but thinking back on his sublime

Music for the Book of Kells and
Trauerfelder/Goirt an Bhróin/Fields of Sorrow
at the Hugh Lane Gallery last December, which reduced members of the audience (including this scribe) to tears, I really think his international recognition should be more widely known in Ireland.
Yes, it’s ‘Art Music.’ Yes, it may take a few listens to adjust the ear.
But the rewards are great.

I’m rather proud he’s my third cousin! He will be 70 this year, so it’s no better time to discover him if you haven’t already.
