CD A0725: Patrick O'Neill's Manuscripts

Patrick O'Neill's Manuscripts
Kathleen Loughnane

CD CoveThis recording presents Kathleen Loughnane's arrangements of a selection of tunes contained in the manuscripts of Patrick O Neill (1765-1832), giving an insight into the eclectic range of music popular in south Tipperary/Kilkenny in the late 18th and early 19th Century. The tunes were collected by Patrick O'Neill and represent his rich efforts to preserve what could still be saved from the gradual erosion of an Irish way of being.

"It takes a special gift to get hold of dots written with a quill pen by fingers long gone to dust and resurrect them into full singing glory" - Alex Monaghan Irish Music Magazine (2009)
