This set of five arrangements of well known Irish folk tunes features slow airs, reels, and a slip jig. Starting with the famous Sally Gardens (a song that Benjamin Britten also arranged) the music gradually winds itself up towards a brilliant conclusion with The Star of Munster. The pieces contain some ornamentation, as well as idiomatic harmonies, and these give a real flavour of Irish music at its best. I’m very grateful to Michelle Lundy for her suggestions in making this music suitable for the harp.
