I composed "Farewell to Great Blasket" after a trip to Ireland. I was struck by the rugged and bleak beauty of the rocks and coastline, and thought of the difficulty of living in such a place. Eventually life got so difficult that the government moved everyone off the island. This piece reflects both the longing for one's homeland, and hope for a new start. I think the melody is particularly fine on the harp, and this piece helped me win both a performance and composition contest for Celtic harp. Key of G, no accidentals. Published by Lyrica Press.
