The Coast of Galicia


The Coast of Galicia is a gentle piece for solo harp from Bill Whelan’s first major orchestral work, The Seville Suite. The movement follows the journey of Aodh Ruadh Ó Dónaill (‘Red’ Hugh O’Donnell) from Ireland to La Coruña in Spain following the defeat of Gaelic Ireland at the Battle of Kinsale in 1602. The subsequent exodus of Gaelic aristocracy to continental Europe, known as the ‘Flight of the Earls’, left their territories open to the organised colonisation by Scottish and English settlers, an event which reverberates in Ireland to this day. The Seville Suite stands as a reflection on these historical events.
