Other Solos

6001 - Saely Kelly
A eautiful lbyrical piece from Edward Bunting’s collection – attributed to Carolan but very unlikely to be by Carolan as its style and construction is conventional. This piece is also 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 Ktherine O’More of Kildare. This piece was adapted by Carolan and his version was played by Arthur O’Neill at the Belfast Harpers’ Assembly in 1792. It is a delight in any concert programme.

 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 also added the third part.
