Falls House Press brings us a lovely collection of traditional Irish tunes arranged for pennywhistle and flute choir by Shippensburg University Professor of Music Dennis Ritz. Ritz has updated these tunes with the addition of contemporary harmonies, rhythms, and accompaniment patterns, and the arrangements lend themselves to several interpretations and choices of instruments. The book contains nine songs in all, including favorites like “The Girls from Farranfore,” “Hanley's Tweed,” and “The Red Haired Boy.” For intermediate players.
