On the piece, Robertson says, “I wrote this tune to celebrate the Celtic Festival of Beltane. Beltane (Là Bealltainn) is the Gaelic May Day festival. Most commonly it is held on May 1st, or about halfway between the spring equinox and summer solstice. It is one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals.”
