Hello all,

This is a small piece in Irish Gaelic from the 18th century (hence the Baroque tag) - the poem is a dialogue between the poet (tenor) and a priest (bass) on the subject of death and godly punishment (or forgiveness) after death.

It's scored for one flute, one piano, two soloists and a cello as well as a choir with 2-3 singers per voice.

Any advice is welcome, particularly on technicalities on the Cello.

With this new system, some not commented works appear suddenly. Good!

This piece doesn't deserve it. First of all, the combination of instruments is a bit strange. The cello is nice as a bass support. But the flute, except in the parts when the singers are quiet, remains a bit obscured. It's a pitty (as always happens) that vocal scores don't stand out with the emulators, but at least we get the idea.

I enjoyed your music.

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment! 

I agree with the fact that the flute sometimes is obscured in the tutti, but on the other hand, I wanted to keep its tone colour in solo passages. 

Within the next few days I normally will be discussing the piece with my teacher, and if everything goes well I should be able to perform it at the Christmas concert at my school - a corrected and bettered version :)

Thanks for your opinion!
