David Mooney (arranger) writes "This arrangement for choir, harp and treble solo combines two well-know folk tunes relating to the subject of the wind. It has been written specially for this project. The North Wind Doth Blow and Blow the Wind Southerly provide the principal thematic material. The two beautiful melodies are woven into the setting while the harp provides a descriptive underlay and word-painting".

The performers are Dr. Cliona Doris (concert harp), Max O'Neill (treble solo), The DIT Junior Choirs (dir. by Dr. Lorraine O'Connell), Niamh McCormack (soprano), Aoife Moore (soprano) and Sheena Styles (alto).
