Daniel Rash’s arrangement of this well-known Irish tune is hauntingly beautiful. It is written for a more mature male group (high school/college/community). The piano accompaniment is straightforward but beautifully enhances the vocal lines. An Irish whistle (key of D) or possibly Uilleann pipes (a small, warm sounding bag pipe) is suggested for the instrumental solo passages. A short, plaintiff tenor solo rounds out this well conceived arrangement.
