An Irish Blessing is a choral setting for upper voices and piano or organ of the traditional Gaelic prayer which begins "May the road rise to meet you". Its gentle melody unfolds slowly, beginning in unison and building to a fuller choral texture with a descant in the third verse. The optional flute part adds a folk-like quality and, in addition to the wide dynamic range indicated, further textural variety can be achieved with opportunities for a soloist or small group of singers.
Perfect for school choirs, weddings, church services, any leaving celebration or a concert programme.
