This recital celebrates the songs of Irish composer John F. Larchet (1884-1967), who was an influential figure in Irish music in the 20th Century. The complete songs were performed together for the first time recently in a project spearheaded by Irish Songmakers, and include such gems A Stoirin Bán, An Ardglass Boat Song, and Padraic the Fiddler, performed by leading Irish singers Raphaela Mangan and Gavan Ring, accompanied by Niall Kinsella. Dr. Larchet was a teacher at RIAM and UCD for many decades and taught a generation of Irish composers.
