The first song that came up was a choral setting of “Wild Mountain Thyme,” which I posted the other day as the song that has meant a lot to my husband and me at our regular pilgrimages to Milwaukee Irish Fest. I thought that this was a sign, so I contacted Garth immediately.
I’m in the process of getting the poems pronounced for me and I’ve ordered an Irish-English dictionary from Amazon to help me do a word for word translation.
This is very exciting. I don’t know when we’ll get started, let alone finished, but I think this will be a fantastic collaboration!!
Now to decide whether the recital they’ll be on will be the originally intended “outside the box” theme or if I’ll just go with a Celtic theme and reprise some of the things that I did with MacDowell Club a few years ago….
