Description
This major choral work by Irish composer Tarik O'Regan is a setting of a medieval narrative, Dialogue of the Elders, about two legendary Celtic heroes who traverse Ireland with Saint Patrick while telling him ancient stories.

"O'Regan's star is now rising at such a velocity that to describe him as 'up and coming' feels decidedly passé. His compositional style, a captivating extension of the English choral tradition, coloured by American minimalism and set within a largely tonal and modal harmonic language, has the quality of being both accessible to the masses and complex enough for the cognoscenti…. His forces are comparatively small—a 16-strong choir singing in English and Middle Irish, a solo guitar, and two bodhráin…. However, the resultant sound is rich indeed. Sometimes exhilarating, always atmospheric, the work demonstrates O'Regan's natural feel for the voice, his deftly multi-textured part-writing, and his strong rhythms."—BBC
