5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgetable Musical Portrait of 1689 Seige of Derry, Ireland 1 Jun 2010
By Caroline E. Bitterwolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Relief of Derry Symphony commissioned by the Derry City Council and recorded live by the Ulster Orchestra at the Derry Guildhall is an incredible and unforgetable musical experience. Commissioned to celebrate the Tercentenary of the Siege of Derry, the composer Shaun Davey paints an extraordinary picture of the 105 day seige in 1689. One need not know the actual history of the seige to visualize the events portrayed. This recording is a must for anyone who enjoys Aaron Copeland's Fanfare for a Modern Man or Tchiachovsky's 1812 Symphony.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relief of Derry Symphony 25 Dec 2012
By Lisa Pratt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After hearing this at work one day on NPR, I'd been trying for months to find a recording. It is a very unusual piece, composed to commerate a very unusual war.

The recording quailty is very good and clear. The only negative is that shipping took a long time, as it comes from teh UK. IT is very worth the wait though. I'd also encourage anyone who orders it to read the program notes as well. They are very moving and explain the composition extremely well.
