Tune of the Day: Lough Erne's Shore

Traditional Irish air

In his book The Irish Song Tradition, Sean O Boyle identifies this song as a reverdie, a type of Irish vision poetry in which a maiden appears and is at first thought to be supernatural, but who turns out to be real. Though in English, he believes this air to be derived from Gaelic origins.

One morning as I went a fowling Bright Phoebus adorned the plain, 'Twas down by the shores of Lough Erne I met with this wonderful dame; Her voice was so sweet and so pleasing, These beautiful notes she did sing; The innocent fowl of the forest their love unto her they did bring.
