    Watch: Alarm Will Sound Shares Video for "Keening" from Donnacha Dennehy's "The Hunger"

    Alarm Will Sound has released a new video for "Keening," from its recording of Donnacha Dennehy's The Hunger. Dennehy's piece explores the emotional, political, and socioeconomic devastation of Ireland’s Great Famine. The video was made by visual designer Deborah Johnson, who was inspired by the piece to connect her own explorations of inherited trauma with the libretto's documentation of the Great Famine. You can watch it below.

    Performed by Alarm Will Sound, soprano Katherine Manley, and sean nós singer Iarla Ó Lionáird, The Hunger features a libretto principally drawn from rare, first-hand accounts by Asenath Nicholson, an American humanitarian so moved by the waves of immigrants arriving in New York that she traveled to Ireland to bear witness. It "bears hearing and rehearing," says the Washington Post. "It is powerful, and it makes a statement."

    To pick up a copy of The Hunger, head to your local music shop, iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include an instant download of the complete album; the album is also available to purchase in the Nonesuch Store as 96kHz/24bit HD digital files. The Hunger can be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.
