This beautiful Celtic inspired waltz is by Mary Kay Aufrance of Gairin. It's a celebration of getting together with fellow musicians to play music from a land none has every visited: "Bells of Ireland are blooming in a vase on the table," and "We can sing with the bells of Ireland, though we've never been anywhere near."
Musicians who play this tune always comment very favorably, saying that it is "a very charming waltz," and a lovely "good-old-fashioned" waltz. The Bells of Ireland was written and performed by Gairin Celtic Music, who played it often with friends at the songwriter's home.
This song was chosen for performance by Silver Strings and the Carson Symphony Strings in the Schools program, with 80 students playing string instruments and singing it for their concert. Silver Strings chamber music quartet and Gairin musicians played this tune on flute, violin, viola, cello, guitar, electric bass guitar, mandolin, accordion and with or without vocals. Vocals are included. This sheet music is arranged as performed by Gairin Celtic Music on the CD Musical Dreams, and the music can be used for playing along with the CD. All musicians play the melody of the tune. (The sample mp3 is from the CD, and you can also find Gairin and Silver Strings performing this song on Youtube for a Christmas concert in the Brewery Arts Center in Carson City, Nevada. Just search for "Bells of Ireland.")
