Ripples in the Rockpools (from 'Granuaile') - Shaun Davey $2.50
Composed by Shaun Davey, Granuaile is based on the life of 'Pirate Queen' Grace O'Malley, the 16th century Irish woman chieftain whose galleys dominated the seas off the Mayo coast. With all its passion, adventure, drama and pain, Shaun Davey found an ideal subject for his lyrical, evocative, highly human work. 'The Granuaile Suite' (1985) sets an episode of Irish history in the context of wider European history through a work which appeals to music lovers of all ages. One song in the cycle, 'Ripples in the Rockpools' quickly became a popular classic and is now in the official Irish school syllabus.
Ripples in the Rockpools is scored for solo voice (with optional chorus) with piano accompaniment or optional full orchestra.
Vocal and piano scores may be purchased and downloaded in PDF format following purchase.
