Viriditas is a song cycle composed by acclaimed Irish artist and singer Ceara Conway in response to an extended process of engagement at Galway University Hospitals. Including newly composed contemporary songs and traditional European healing songs and rhythms from Georgia and Italy, Viriditas takes the listener on a journey through songs inspired by conversations with staff and patients, and recordings of hospital equipment, plants, and the tools of sound healers.
Viriditas is introduced and performed by Ceara Conway, accompanied by Anna Mullarkey.
Duration: 25 minutes
Saolta Arts and Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture present Viriditas as part of The Deepest Shade of Green.
