CELTIC LINES concert on Tuesday 30 April 2019

which included four of my “Folksong Snapshots”

They write:
“Celtic lines è pensiero armonico in movimento espresso attraverso brani musicali dal sapore celtico.

Il progetto si propone di accendere un faro per riportare alla luce armonie, scorci, dettagli ed emozioni legati all’epoca e al fascino dell’Abbazia di S. Andrea avvicinando la cultura musicale medioevale celtica al linguaggio esecutivo contemporaneo.”

[Celtic lines is harmonic thinking in movement expressed through musical pieces with a Celtic flavor.

The project aims to light a lighthouse to bring to light harmonies, views, details and emotions linked to the era and the charm of the Abbey of St. Andrea, bringing Celtic medieval musical culture closer to the contemporary language of performance.]

The programme was:
David Warin Solomons – Four Folksong Snapshots

Ralph Vaughan Williams – Six studies in English folk-songs

Armando Ghidoni – Jazzy-Celtic Suite

and selections of traditional Celtic pieces reviewed in contemporary style.

Flow my tears by John Dowland for saxophone and guitar

Performance by Jess Gillam and Miloš Karadaglić of my arrangement of Dowland’s Flow my tears for saxophone and classical guitar

Video

Flow my tears fall from your springs,
Exil’d for ever: let me mourn
Where night’s black bird her sad infamy sings,
There let me live forlorn.

Down vain lights shine you no more,
No nights are dark enough for those
That in despair their last fortunes deplore,
Light doth but shame disclose.

Never may my woes be relieved,
Since pity is fled,
And tears, and sighs, and groans my weary days
Of all joys have deprived.

From the highest spire of contentment,
My fortune is thrown,
And fear, and grief, and pain for my deserts
Are my hopes since hope is gone.

Hark you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Learn to contemn light,
Happy, happy they that in hell
Feel not the world´s despite.
