Two works by Patrick Cassidy performed at the Irish Peace Proms
A Happy New Year to all from the team here at Air-Edel!
“A stroke of genius to kick off 1916 celebrations”. Our composer Patrick Cassidy began 2016 at the Peace Proms in Ireland where two of his works were performed.
The Irish Independent reported the audiences’ “sheer delight” when Patrick Cassidy’s arrangement of “Mise Eire” was performed by singer Sibeal Ni Chasaide. Critic Nicola Anderson hailed it as a “haunting and moving rendition” and “the most beautiful musical moment of all”.
Air-Edel administer the publishing and master recording of “Mise Eire”, which was written by Patrick for the documentary ‘1916: The Irish Rebellions’.
The Irish government are also using the track in their commercial for the centenary anniversary of the 1916 rebellions – watch it here.
