'Shall I take my little black currach over the broad-breasted glorious ocean? O King of the bright kingdom, shall I go of my own choice upon the sea?'. Written by Shaun Davey in 1982 for orchestra, soloists, pipe band and choir, this recording incorporates live performances taken from both the premiere in Brittany in 1983 and the revised 1990 performance in Glasgow.
