After hearing the music used in the successful touring dance production Riverdance, Brian West was inspired to write a work for young band with the vigour and life found in Irish folk music. The modal nature of the work, and the avoidance of traditional "western" chord progressions give Hornpipe its unusual but infectious appeal.
