In the 1980s he made a series of recordings with the Benedictine Monks of Glenstal Abbey and Irish chant singer Nóirín Ní Riain, his first wife.
With Helen Phelan, his second wife, he founded the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at the University of Limerick in 1994, was professor of music there, and, until 2016, was director of the Academy, building it up from nothing to about three hundred students across approximately twenty postgraduate and undergraduate degree programmes.
He recorded extensively with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, and worked to relocate the group from Dublin to the Irish World Academy at the University of Limerick, and to put the orchestra on a more professional footing.
He died on 7 November 2018, aged sixty-seven.
