The Chronicles of Meath was commissioned by Meath County Council in 2012 for Dearbhail Finnegan and the Meath Harp Ensemble. The brief was to write a contemporary setting of music for Irish harp ensemble. The Chronicles of Meath was premiered in the Solstice Theatre, Navan in March 2013 and has since been performed to great acclaim in Ireland and abroad on many occasions. The performance at the World Harp Congress in Sydney August 2014 where Vincent conducted the Meath Harp Ensemble is considered by many who heard it as one of the highlights of the Congress.

The music is in seven movements each depicting a different aspect of history and heritage of County Meath

• Newgrange
• The Hill of Tara and the Hill of Slane
• The Book of Kells
• O’Carolan’s Arrival
• Lament at the Boyne (for Solo Harp)
• O’Carolan’s Concerto
• Have you Ever Been to Nobber in the County of Meath
