Carolan's music lends itself very well to modern teaching purposes or for individual study. It is fun to play along with other melodic instruments, too, such as the flute or violin. Here is a chance to enjoy timelessly beautiful music that is classic in the sense of elegant, with a sense of tradition, yet full of lively folk tunes that should appeal to any listener. Titles include: Sheebeg and Sheemore, Princess Royal, All Alive, Clergy's Lamentation, Blind Mary, Squire Wood's Lamentation on the Refusal of his Halfpence, Planxty Kelly, Carolan's Quarrel with the Landlady, Lament for Terence MacDonough, Mrs Ann MacDermott Roe, Kean O'Hara, Planxty Lady Wrixon, Carolan's Concerto, Morgan Magan, Carolan's Dream.
Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738) combined the Italian Baroque music popular of his day with his own native Irish folk music. This collection of Celtic classics includes a CD of full performances and piano accompaniments.
