Clann Lir

Clann Lir  is a new orchestral suite composed by Dublin based harper and flautist, Oisín Morrison. The suite, an hour long musical portrayal of the Irish legend ‘The Children of Lir’, will be played by Ceolfhoireann Naithí agus Cairde, an orchestra of young traditional and classical musicians.

The suite explores the tragic story of the children, depicting their turbulent lives, including the loss of their humanity, their beloved parents and their endurance of the harshest conditions in nature.

The music of Clann Lir combines ten movements, representing the different chapters in the family’s life, which eventually culminates in their inevitable reunion in the afterlife.
