Traditional music always welcomes new composition. At a time when there are
important early collections of music being unearthed from the past, it is
vitally important that present day composers continue to create new music.
Here we have a body of music by Michael McCague that gives us an
invaluable insight into his deeply personalised compositions. I have no doubt
that this collection is going to take its place in traditional Irish music and remain
valid for years to come.
