This selection is an Old Irish Air arranged by Ms. Watson. It is moderately slow and opens with a vocal solo. All four voice parts at one point in the song are given the melody. This piece has some wonderful “Irish sounds” with the voice parts repeating a particular vocal motif. The publisher includes a pronunciation guide at the end of the selection to assist with the piece and defines some of the text to assist in understanding this 18th century poetry.
