DUBLIN AND KILKENNY CHAMBER CHOIR IRELAND XMAS 2017 MY Irish Carol

AN IRISH CHRISTMAS CAROL FRANK CORCORAN

is just that : This fine, arching melody from 17th. c. “Baroque” Ireland

with its sarabande rhythm suggests an instrumental piece of the time for harp or pipes .

It perfectly matches the lovely Christmas text in Irish by Archbishop Aodh Mac Aingil ( died 1626 ) .

My English

translation tries to grasp the folklike quality of the original.
