First published in 1971, An Irish Rhapsody has become a staple inthe literature for young concert bands. It demonstrates Clare Grundman’ s mastery of orchestration and exceptional treatment of transitions and pacing. Including the folk melodies The Morren (Minstrel Boy), I KnowWhere I’m Going, Shepher’s Lamb Reel, Cockles and Mussels, The Rakes of Mallow and Kathleen O’More, it is just as fresh-sounding and effective today as it was more than 30 years ago!
