The cover of the CD l’air du temps/the spirit of the times by myself and the piper Mark Redmond. The beautiful design is by Clare Lynch; it incorporates architectural motifs from Christ Church Cathedral Dublin, where the CD was recorded over four nights, attempting to dodge interruptions by city-centre traffic and seagulls.


Here is the first track, Amhrán na Leabhar. This type of arrangement is an attempt to add my own take on these self-sufficient melodies, not by ‘harmonising’ them, but by composing a new melody that complements the patterns of the original.

The CD is available from Tower Records, Claddagh Records, Christ Church Cathedral shop, or by emailing
