Variations on a Celtic Tune (Mo Ghile Mear)

Variations on a Celtic Tune (Mo Ghile Mear)

Series: MusicWorks Grade 2 Publisher: Hal Leonard Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composer: Michael Oare

Level: 2

The poignant lament “Mo Chile Mear” (My Gallant Hero) was authored after the defeat of the Scots and their Celtic allies at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, ending dreams of independence from English rule. Michael's emotional setting opens with a flute solo then builds gradually as layers of instrumental groups are added. The piece shifts to a lilting 6/8 style, propelled by the percussion section, and culminates in a majestic statement by the entire ensemble.
