Other Solos

6001 - Saely Kelly
A beautiful lyrical piece from Edward Bunting’s collection – attributed to Carolan but very unlikely to be by Carolan as its style and construction is conventional. Arranged for 2 harps and 2 flutes.

 6002 - The Hawk of Ballyshannon
Attributed to Rory Dall O Cathain (c.1560-1650), this is a strong tune composed for the marriage of Charles O’Donnell of Mayo to Katherine O’More of Kildare. Adapted from the version played by Arthur O’Neill at the Belfast Harpers’ Assembly in 1792.  Recorded on the The Belfast Harp Orchestra in Concert (1992) album.

 6003 - The Faery Queen
Another historical epic piece from the late 1500s dedicated to one of two people that were called the Faery Queen – either Queen Grainne O Malley (Granuaile) of Connemara or Queen Elizabeth the 1st – and there was a historic meeting of both these queens who met as queens of equal power at the time of the Spanish Armada. This piece was also adapted by Carolan who added the third part.

6004 - Sunday Morning
This lilting piece has an unusual melodic structure that makes it very appealing. It is derived from a song about a romance in county Cork.   

 6005 - An Chuilfhionn
One of Ireland's most cherished and ancient love-songs, arranged in 3 versions that may be performed separately or consecutively.  #1 for voice and harp from Denis Hempson (18thC), #2 as an instrumental Theme and Variations from Cornelius Lyons (18thC); and #3 as an instrumental 'slow air' from Janet Harbison (20thC).
