Been taking a break from composing, but mostly because I wanted to arrange a couple of these beauties. I love me some Irish airs from time to time and these are the first three that I have sat down to arrange for the piano for myself. Y'alls can have a listen. The links are down below. And I got the PDF file for the score. 😋 1. Inisheer: https://soundcloud.com/user-563317711/inisheer-inis-oirr-thomas-walsh-mini-piano-arrangement 2.

Sword in My Hand (Opus 16) was inspired by Celtic and Medieval folk music. It was a part of my music production class assignment asking for complete percussion tracks. It was challenging, since I'm completely not a rhythm oriented person, and I think that the rhythm section is the worst part of the composition. Among several other instruments, the piece is played by celtic harp, hammered dulcimer, tin whistle, recorder, lute, irish bouzouki, accordion and string section (violins, cellos and basses). It is written in E flat major with a short bridge in E flat minor. The composition is all midi; I'm not capable of finding a musician playing a harp to be able to record my music, and I only possess low piano skills. I'm also not pretty sure about the panning and reverb accuracy. There is no score for this composition. I personally think, that this is one of my worst works I've ever completed. Thank you for listening and any helpful hints or comments are very welcomed!
