This piece was commissioned by Rory Davis and the Cinco Ranch Jr. High Honors Band in commemoration of their performance at the 2004 Mid West International Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago, Illinois. The piece is a musical ride down the Irish river that passed through the city of Limerick. One section celebrates the town’s rich history and modern present day, the other explores the walls of an old English castle long forgotten.
