The Complete Carolan Songs & Airs
This remarkable book is a valuable resource for those wishing to play and sing the music of this extraordinary 18th-century blind harper. This comprehensive collection combines Carolan's surviving airs with sensitive and appropriate harp settings, metrically matching them with Carolan's surviving lyrics for the airs. 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.
