This is a set of three Gaelic songs that are highly evocative of Scottish folk song and folk lore while at the same time being fresh and original. The set includes a lament, a love song, and a wonderful soliloquy "at the edge of the ocean". All three pieces feature sections of vocables of the kind sung in traditional Gaelic puirt-a-beul or 'mouth music'.

Dàn nan ròn was premiered in 2011 by the Paragon Ensemble and young singers from Voice Factory in Glasgow.

A great project for an enterprising treble voice ensemble.

Full audio pronunciation guide by Gaelic singer Wilma Kennedy included.

Copies must not be given, lent, hired or sold to any other group.
