SEAMUS HEANEY ( Poet ) AND FRANK CORCORAN ( Composer )

Strand Road Dublin . 10. 3. 2005 Seamus Heaney to Frank Corcoran after Dublin Premiere of Corcoran’s

MAD SWEENEY / SUIBHNE GEALT for Speaker and Chamber Orchestra.

Frank,

That was a lift and a lift-off- the Boeing reached cruising-level, but there was APOGEE to it also.

It – the programme – built and was built ! Your ” QUASI UN CANTO” for Full Orchestra reminded me of Auden:

” By all means sing of love , but if you do, do make sure you make a rare old hullaballoo… ”

– Heighho and high doh !

Bearers aloft !

SEAMUS
