The Irish Blessing, by Joyce Eilers Bacak, arr for brass band by Stephen Bradnum


The Irish Blessing is a celtic gem – the words of the traditional benediction aptly portrayed in music which is both affirming and uplifting.

This finely crafted and sensitively scored arrangement provides an excellent training vehicle for bands of all ages, helping to develop dynamic range; integrate solo and tutti, and at the same time enteraining an audience!

Perfect for devotional or concert use.

The Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sunshine warm up on your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fi elds.
And until we meet again,
And until we meet again.
May the God that loves us all
Hold you in the palm of his hand.
Amen, Amen, Amen.
