About this product
- DescriptionReturning to Belfast after a long absense, to attend her father's funeral. Catherine McKenna - a young composer - remembers exactly why she left: the claustrophobic intimacies of the Catholic enclave, her fastidious, nagging mother, and the pervading tensions of a city at war with itself. She remembers a more incent time, when the Loyalists Lambeg drums sounded mysterious and exciting; she remembers her shattered relationship with the drunken, violent Dave, she remembers the child she had with him, waiting back in Glasgow. This is a vel, about coming to terms with the past and the healing power of music, Grace Notes is a master story-teller's triumphant return to the long form: a powerful lyrical vel of great distinction.
