Aimhirgín

‘I am a wind at sea, I am a flooding wave, I am the voice of the ocean …’ these powerful words are attributed to the legendary druid Amairgen Glúngel (Aimhirgín) as he casts a spell over Ireland. Evoking the spirit of a pre-Christian Celtic world, Aimhirgín employs his magic to control the forces of nature and assert his will over all things in Ireland, restoring peace to the land. Swiss composer Ivo Antognini underscores the chanting chorus with an hypnotic cor anglais.
