This is one of Ireland's most haunting ballads ever. It is a lovely mixolydian melody describing the sorrow at leaving one's homeland and loved ones, likely forever. This arrangement uses long drones and simple accompaniment to let the lyrical melody shine. Instructions are included for easily tripling the length of this arrangement. One sharp, no accidentals. Perfect for your St. Patrick's Day engagements, but I play this piece year-round! Upper beginner level.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
