Eibhlís Farrell for this week's profile!
The most valuable was the peace, quietness and time to write uninterrupted. I was working on a setting of Ave Maris Stella for soprano and string quartet, a choral setting of Ave Maria and a cycle of songs of Irish poetry. It is cool in the evenings so bring a warm jumper or fleece. The best eating experience was the local nectar and ambrosia: local goat cheese, honey and figs form the garden eaten altogether. I thought the area was beautiful and loved Carcassonne---musicians feel a real connection with the troubadours of the area. I would love to do a performance in the little church.
