'SIX IRISH MELODIES'

Arr by Alan Middleton

There was a period in Ireland when itinerant harpers (some of them blind) made a living by touring an area, visiting and entertaining the wealthy families.  As well as playing traditional tunes, a few of them composed songs in praise of their hosts, and the best-known of these harpers nowadays is  Turlough O’Carolan (1670 - 1738). 
Four of his melodies are included in this selection which also has a traditional piece ‘The Gaelic Farmer’, and the beautiful melody ‘Miss Hamilton’, written for one of his patrons by Cornelius Lyons, a contemporary of Carolan, and harper to Lord Antrim.  The story behind ‘Squire Wood’s Lamentation’ is too complicated to recount here but, although it was not written as a true ‘lament’ for someone who had died, it is one of Carolan’s best quiet pieces.
