Inspired by the story of 57 Irish immigrants who mysteriously died while working for the Pennsylvania Railroad, this tour-de-force tone poem depicts in contrasting sections the haunting mystery of their demise, their work for the railroad, and a tribute to their homeland with settings of Bridgit O'Malley and Brian Boru's March. Awesome writing!! (5:00)
