Irish songs

We learned two Irish Songs on Tuesday evening. The first was an arrangement by Niccomo of Connla's Well. It is quite difficult with harmonies that remind me of the drone of the pipes. One nice thing about it is that the bass part has the tune in the middle section.

The second was a lovely version of Gartan Mother's Lullaby.

The title of this video is totally misleading. They are not Meryl Streep's children. They listened her singing the song an album when they were children.

Apart from that, this seems to be the version we learned on Tuesday Night.
