Simon Quigley – Ryan Vs White Star Line

Over the past few months I’ve been recording piano, strings, and the amazing vocals of Martin McCann and soprano Clare Kavanagh for a new contemporary piece by Simon Quigley. The piece is based on a court case taken by Thomas Ryan from Askeaton in Co. Limerick against the White Star Line, the company that ran the titanic. This weekend we are going to visit his surviving relations to discuss the opening performance of the piece, hopefully as part of a documentary to be made about the process of writing, recording, and performing the work.
