Composer


Memores Sumus was composed and mastered for the cello in 4 hours.


It debuted on the 15th June 2021, during an online broadcasting of a Thanksgiving and Remembrance service to honour the nurses and midwives, who served and died in Ireland and internationally, and was performed as the Reflection.


The enormity and depth of what Prof Horan had requested for this piece was daunting, but challenging. He wanted a work for reflection, so that those who had died would be remembered and not be lost.


He quoted the old adage that people died twice, once when they physically left this plane, and a second time when their names were no longer spoken. It was his wish that this piece would carry their names forever.


The title is Memores Sumus, meaning We Remember

From Prof Paul Horan,

Assistant Professor of Nursing and Midwifery,

Trinity College, Dublin

This piece was created for a service of Thanksgiving and Remembrance at the School of Nursing at Trinity College, Dublin on the 15th June 2021, to reflect and contemplate the sacrifice of nurses and midwives in Ireland, and internationally, on the front lines of the COVID Pandemic.


Nurses and Midwives have died in Ireland and across the globe during this plague. The International Congress of Nursing has reported that more nurses have died during this Pandemic than died during The Great War (1914-1918). It is suggested by the ICN in January 2021 that over 2,500 Nurses died providing nursing care during this pestilence. The ICN also recognise that 20,000+ healthcare professionals have died across our planet in the line of duty during COVID19. Interestingly, in July 2020, 36% of nurses and midwives in Ireland had contracted the disease. In countries such as Mexico and Iran, the number of nurses affected was in the region of 50%.


This musical composition pays homage to our healthcare heroes and angels who made the ultimate sacrifice. The poignancy of this work should act as a lasting memorial and legacy to those who always care selflessly.

We Will Remember - Memores Sumus - 2021

....a brief piece of gratitude and contemplation dedicated to the struggles and sacrifices of nurses and midwives in Ireland and all over the world during the Covid-19 pandemic...


...single-line melodies rise and fall with a somber gracefulness that suits the occasion and intention of the work perfectly and have nothing wrapped around them to distract listeners from what’s being said.


The piece is a strong reminder of what one single voice can accomplish and how well it can be heard.
