Tune of the Day: The Gentle Maiden

Traditional Irish tune

Also known as “The Child of Dreamland”, this Irish folk tune was probably composed in the mid-1800s. It was first notated in 1839 by Ed Bunting, who first heard it from a Miss Murphy of Dublin.

This melody was included in James Galway and Phil Coulter's 1997 album Legends, which featured many best-loved Celtic melodies.
