3 minutes
World music
String orchestra
Instrumental parts

The 'Blind Mary' of the title was, apparently, another harper, a contemporary of Turlough Carolan, who taught the harp to the sons of one of Carolan's patrons, Charles O'Connor. It is a much loved tune among traditional musicians and various versions of it exist, all slightly different from that in Donal O'Sullivan's CAROLAN (London 1958). The Sarah and Cian to whom this is dedicated were Leader and Co-Leader of the Intermediate Orchestra at Cork School of Music and both are now pursuing successful chamber music careers.

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.
