Isle of my Heart: Suite for Piano Solo

Mon, 05 Jun 2017


A new book of Manx piano music by Madeline Kelly has been published by Culture Vannin.

In Isle of my Heart, accomplished pianist, teacher and composer, Madeline Kelly, has taken a selection of her favourite songs and melodies from the Isle of Man and incorporated them into a suite of original jazz-infused pieces for piano solo. Well-loved themes such as Ellan Vannin, the Manx Fishermen’s Evening Hymn, The Pride of Purt-le-Murra and Arrane Oie Vie provide inspiration for this imaginative collection of six pieces which will be enjoyed by intermediate to advanced level pianists.

Isle of my Heart is available to buy from Isle of Man bookshops or direct from Culture Vannin.

A premiere performance of the suite by Madeline Kelly will take place at Celtfest Isle of Man in St German’s Cathedral, Peel, during the afternoon of Saturday 15th July.
