Artifacts: The Music of Michael McGlynn | Kansas City Chorale

Since 2008, the works of Irish composer Michael McGlynn have been a staple of the Kansas City Chorale’s repertoire. Artifacts: The Music of Michael McGlynn is a remarkable collection of Chorale stalwarts and new favorites that deliver the movement and intimacy of a live performance. When we consider the influence of Irish musical traditions on even the most modern music, perhaps all Irish music can be said to contain artifacts – and certainly here, in McGlynn’s nuanced incorporation of traditional elements into reimagined, new pieces that resonate as deeply as if one had listened to them for one’s entire life.
