1 Boyne Water - Belfast Harp Orchestra - In Concert 1992
1 Boyne Water
Published in Bunting’s 1809 collection and celebrating the Williamite victory in 1690, this tune has also been claimed by Nationalists who render it as Rosc Catha na Mumhan. It is also suggested that the air is of Scottish origin associated with a Jacobite son ‘When the King Comes O’er the Water’. The claims and counter claims are witness to the popularity of the air!
