The Brendan Voyage Movt. 08 - 'The Gale'

Shaun Davey

With his first major work, The Brendan Voyage' (1980), Shaun Davey opened up totally new musical territory. For the first time, in a suite especially written for uilleann pipes soloist Liam O'Flynn, a traditional musician was integrated with a classical orchestra. The uilleann pipe passages in the Brendan suite, capturing all the force, emotion and beauty of Irish traditional music, here blend with the symphony orchestra in a synthesis of old and new which has enchanted audiences around the world.

The Gale is the eighth movement of this ten movement work and is scored for full orchestra and uilleann pipes.  Here the wind builds the sea into a procession of gigantic Atlantic rollers with the boat, like the pipes, bending to the pressure but refusing to be overwhelmed.
