Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 086327630X, Paperback)Recent years have seen a remarkable explosion of world-wide interest in Irish music. Little is known, however, about the rich musical tradition of Northern Ireland. Songs of the North of Ireland is put together by two authors whose contribution to the Irish music scene is immense, and their understanding of traditional melodies beyond compare. Both authors were born in Northern Ireland, and the songs were learned over the whole northern half of the country. They are traditional songs, in Irish and English; still being sung as part of a vibrant oral tradition.
Songs of the North of Ireland includes eighteenth-century songs such as "Aisling"; modern love songs such as "Tráthnóna Beag Aréir"; Glens of Antrim songs; songs from Lough Neagh to Sliabh Gallen, including "Blackberry Fair"; songs by The Poet Mac Grianna; songs of Tyrone; some great slow airs; folk songs; carousing songs; and songs of saints and scholars.
