‘Musiques sacrées Île de Man/Cornouailles/Galice’ Eglise Saint Louis
David Kilgallon and Russell Gilmour performed in the Eglise Saint Louis concert within the Festival Interceltique de Lorient 2015. We played first in the concert this year (as I had to go to the Stadium for the Nuit Interceltique at 10pm) and we began with a performance of ‘Mannin Vooar’, which we have adapted for Trumpet and Organ from David’s original solo organ arrangement/composition. Next followed a progressive interpretation of the Norwegian song ’Når månen tindrar’, and then we played a suite of complicated and fast-moving Irish tunes by Eoghan O’Cannabain.
We finished as we began - with a Manx tune - and we played the two tunes that we deemed to be the unofficial ‘anthems’ of the Manx contingent at FIL - Irree ny Greiney (by Bob Carswell) and Mylecharaine's March.
