A special performance of the Requiem for 1916 in Irish, composed by Odhrán Ó Casaide.

This powerful piece is inspired by the original pioneering work of Seán O Riada. The Requiem sets out to explore the beauty of sean nós voice, together with chamber choir and orchestra, classical solo voices, as well as traditional and early musical instruments. The blend of Irish and classical styles reflects the two great musical traditions in Ireland at the time of the Easter Rising in 1916.

The high point of the Requiem is the setting of Patrick Pearse’s poem Fornocht de Chonac Thú where he turns his back on the beauty of this world and sets about the mission which he predicts will lead to his demise. This poem was composed in 1912, and is very similar in style to that of the great 18th Century poets. This is followed by Caoine na bPáistí – which is a lament specially written to commemorate all of the children who died in the Rising.

The performance represents a celebration of the diversity of musical traditions in Louth in a wonderful collaborative community effort.

Cumtha ag Odhrán Ó Casaide, déanann Marbhna comóradh ar 2016 le hamhránaíocht ar an sean nós, cór agus ceolfhoireann, agus glórtha aonair. Saothar mór, cumhachtach é atá faoi thionchar stíl Sheáin Ó Riada agus a léiríonn na stíleanna ceoil a bhí i réim in Éirinn 1916.

Buaicphointe an léirithe ná cóiriú ceoil de dhán an Phiarsaigh Fornocht do Chonac Thú, ina gcasann an file a dhroim le suáilcí an tsaoil ar mhaithe len é féin a thiomnú saoirse na hÉireann bhaint amach. Píosa álainn é Caoineadh na bPáistí a cumadh i gcuimhne agus in ómós na leanaí go léir a cailleadh le linn an Éirí Amach.

Sa léiriú ildánach seo de Marbhna, déantar traidisiún ceoil Chontae Lú a cheiliúradh chomh maith lena shaibhreas litríochta. Beidh atmaisféar speisalta i Séipéal na nAguistíneach, mar a bhfuil fuinneoga áille leis an ealaíontóir iomráiteach Harry Clarke.
