The Complete Carolan Songs & Airs - Arranged for the Irish Harp

The Complete Carolan Songs & Airs - Arranged for the Irish Harp

The Complete Carolan Songs & Airs - Arranged for the Irish Harp

by Caitriona Rowsome

Book/4 CD pack. A valuable resource for those wishing to play and sing the music of the extraordinary 18th-century blind harper, Turlough Carolan. This comprehensive collection combines Carolan's surviving airs with sensitive and appropriate harp settings, metrically matching them with his surviving lyrics. Many of the airs are not commonly known as songs, and some include lyrics published here for the first time. For each of Carolan's Irish songs, an English interpretation is also provided in the form of translations, paraphrases, and in some cases English songs that give context to Carolan's Irish verse. The arrangements vary from from simple to complex and suit a variety of skill levels. Includes historical notes, an appendix on notes and ornamentation, more. All 226 songs and airs are performed on the CDs by the author. 254 pp.
