    Acallam na Senórach is a setting by English composer Tarik O’Regan of a 12th Century text about the Fianna warriors Caílte mac Rónán and  Oisín, nephew of legendary Fionn Mac Cumhaill. O’Regan adapted the narrative into a one hour musical setting for solo guitar and chorus which was commissioned and recorded by Chamber Choir Ireland along with guitarist Stewart French. It’s under the Blue spotlight all this week.
