The Ancient Music of Ireland - The Bunting Collections

Edward Bunting published almost 300 airs in his three collections of 1796, 1809 and 1840. Many of these airs, published in piano arrangements, have been used by later songwriters, including Thomas Moore, and are still heard in both vocal and instrumental form today. This facsimile edition of all three collections includes Bunting's extensive dissertation on the history and practice of music in Ireland, with details of harps and harp technique, harpers and their compositions. It has proved a source of inspiration to countless composers and performers.
