The Island of Saints and Scholars

David O'Fallon (composer)


"The Island of Saints and Scholars" is an old nickname for Ireland dating back to the early Middle Ages. This original work is a reflection upon Ireland’s rich and turbulent history, which can be heard in the lyrical melodic phrases, ever-changing meter, and moments of dissonance. The rhythmic profile of the piece was suggested by a type of Old Irish verse that carries seven syllables per line, resulting in a vibrant and spirited musical experience.
