Commissioned by Radio Telefís Éireann in 2004 for performance by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra as part of the 2005 RTÉ Living Music Festival. Duration: 10-11 minutes
The score is in C.
There is a place, they say, at one of the poles of the Moon where the sun always shines. Because there is almost no tilt in the lunar axis, a mountain high enough and near enough to one of the lunar poles would always have its peak bathed in light from a Sun that remained forever on the horizon except when the Earth eclipsed the Sun in what would be a lunar eclipse on Earth, but would be a solar eclipse on the Moon.
The orchestra is divided into three ensembles. The seating plan provided,
or a similar set up with Left- Centre- and Right Ensembles, should be adhered to and will enhance the performance.
Horn (French Horn) (4)
