Poems include Innisfree, Sailing to Byzantium, When You are Old, The Sorrow of Love, No Second Troy, September 1913.
Deirdre Donnelly and Des Cave will read a selection of poetry and singers Yvonne Brennan (Soprano) and Anthony Norton (Tenor) will sing the new musical settings of selected poems in an operatic and classical style with a traditional Irish orchestra.
The orchestra will consist of Irish Harp, Whistle, Percussion, Fiddle, Cello, French Horn, Uilleann Pipes,  Pianoforte and Keyboards.
“Their Hearts have not grown old;
Passion or conquest, wander where they will,
Attend upon them still”
