The Brendan Voyage Movt. 06 -'Mykines Sound' - Shaun Davey - available for hire $150.00

With his first major work, 'The Brendan Voyage' (1980), Shaun Davey opened up totally new musical territory. For the first time, in a suite especially written for uilleann pipes soloist Liam O'Flynn, a traditional musician was integrated with a classical orchestra. The uilleann pipe passages in the Brendan suite, capturing all the force, emotion and beauty of Irish traditional music, here blend with the symphony orchestra in a synthesis of old and new which has enchanted audiences around the world.

In Mykines Sound the pipes play a reel as Brendan's boat rushes down a narrow channel between two of the Faroe Islands, unable to turn into the safety of a harbour, for fear of capsizing in a powerful following sea. The 'Brendan' was swept once more out into the Atlantic before eventually being able to reach land.
