Longing for Peace, A


Another of Sean Nugent's compositions is the slow air appropriately titled 'A Longing for Peace'. How happy Sean would be were he with us today, to know that the struggle is almost over and we now have peace again in 'Dear Old Ireland'. The tune is beautifully played with emotion by Larry Nugent, Sean's son. It can also be heard on Larry's fine recording Traditional Irish Music on Flute and Tinwhistle, on the Shanachie label.
