Turlough O'Carolan was born in County Meath, Ireland in 1670. He was trained as a youth to play the harp, and throughout his life composed a large number of songs. O'Carolan developed a personal style, containing melodic elements of Irish folk music, courtly harp music and Italian baroque music. O'Carolan's music was not published during his lifetime; therefore, various versions of his melodies have been handed down through the aural tradition. It is also not known how he accompanied his melodies. This collection presents 39 favorite O'Carolan melodies in easily playable, lively arrangements for alto (treble) recorder, with guitar chords above the staves. Included are four original melodies by Richard Voss inspired by and in the style of the early master.

  • April 27, 2011 A nice collection

    This is a collection of Irish airs, jigs, dance music, etc. scored for alto recorder and guitar. The music is very straightforward and accessible, and written in the typical keys in which you'd expect it to be played on tin whistle. These tunes aren't bad for beginner/intermediate...

    play at slow tempi, but they'll drag along. At the fast tempi at which they should be played, a fair amount of finger dexterity is required.

  • March 16, 2008 A little disappointed, but mostly happy.

    The only thing I have against this book, which has a nice representative selection of tunes, is that it seems that the chords it gives for accompaniment are the ones you would play once you have capoed your guitar up. That means if I want to use the chords for...

    keyboard or--better yet--Celtic harp, I have to figure out which chords the arranger really intended--not impossible, of course, but inconvenient. I haven't run into this type of arranging before, and I hope it isn't used much elsewhere.
