Tune of the Day: Constantine Maguire

Traditional Irish air

This air was composed by the famous Irish harper Turlough Carolan (1670–1738). As noted by Donal O'Sullivan in his book “Carolan: The Life Times and Music of an Irish Harper” (1958), “the correspondence between words and tune is more than usually close, both forming one song in praise of Constantine Maguire”, a contemporary of Carolan.

Thanks to Michael for suggesting this tune!
