Tune of the Day: The Dawning of the Day

Traditional Irish air

This air, one of a supposed seven or eight hundred, is reputed to have been composed by Thomas Connellan, a 17th-century harper from County Sligo, Ireland who spent considerable time in Scotland. It is often confused with the other popular Irish air of the same name, which it predates.
