Remember by Seoirse Bodley receives performance in China.

Aylish Kerrigan will be performing Seoirse Bodley‘s, Remember, on 12 April in Wuhan, China, at the Bell Concert Hall. This work was commissioned by the NCH for Gavin Ring and premiered at the Inaugural Bernadette Greevy Bursary recital last November.

Seoirse’s programme note for that recital read as follows:

“This new song to a lovely text by Christina Rosetti will, I hope, evoke an emotional response but not a sorrowful one, since it carries as an essential message a sense of the happiness evoked by Bernadette Greevy’s singing. The music is written in the consonant yet irregular style I have adapted in my compositions premiered during the last six years. The voice part is an extended melody, carefully fitting a baritone or mezzo voice, using the registers and dynamics in a subtle manner geared to the expression of the text.”
