Is Amarok really Ommadawn 2?

0

Amarok was always intended to be a sequel of sorts to Ommadawn (although not in the direct linear manner of TB/TBII) so the obvious thing to do was to involve as many of the original participants as possible. William Murray, who co-wrote The Horse Song (aka On Horseback), wrote the short story “Cheer up, cloth ears…” for the Amarok booklet. Other names on both Ommadawn and Amarok are Clodagh Simonds, Bridget St John, Paddy Moloney and Julian Bahula. Both Amadan and Amarok have the same first three letters: ‘Ama’. This supports the idea that Amarok is actually Ommadawn 2. In an interview Mike stated that he intended to make Ommadawn 2, but as the work progressed it gained “a life of its own” and became something different, and therefore got a different name.
