Ancient Irish Airs and Dances: 201 Classic Tunes Arranged For Piano


From the hopeful anticipation of Mary, do you fancy me? to the bitterness of Hag, you’ve killed me, this extraordinary compilation of Irish melodies runs the emotional gamut, with melancholy airs and sprightly reels aplenty. Its source material, The Petrie Collection of the Ancient Music of Ireland, ranks among the most important 19th-century collections of traditional Irish music, with its song texts in both Irish and English, plus George Petrie’s detailed notes about the music’s origins. Out of print for many years, the Petrie Collection became an extremely rare and much sought-after collector’s item; this new edition will bring the cherished old songs into the repertoire of any student or performer of traditional Irish music.
