A song for solo soprano or tenor, two flutes, oboe and strings, duration 6'33", released in 2014. It is a setting of a poem in three verses by Julia Allard of Truro in Cornwall, who is a Cornish Bard. She writes: “I got the idea after reading the obituary to a fisherman in a local newspaper. I imagined this old salt, uneducated perhaps to modern eyes, making his last journey under golden sails to his final rest. Stuart's music encapsulates this. It needed to be simple – something that the old boy could relate to; and he has achieved this.” The music has a sense of longing for something that is lost and can never be recaptured – the Cornish word “hyreth” (“hiraeth” in Welsh, “cumha” in Irish) sums this up absolutely. This is Celtic sound painting at its best.Composer email: or themusicman55@gmail.comPerforming rights apply in the United Kingdom, United States of America and CanadaFind SB Vision Music / Stuart Brown on Facebook.
