King of the Blind
This piece, attributed to Carolan, comes from The Most Celebrated Irish Tunes (1724) published by the Neal brothers in Dublin. This marks the first publication of Irish music and includes a large number of harp tunes. Some believe this may actually be another piece by Rory Dall, and it’s familiar melodic and rhythmic repetitions seem to support this. I find this a wonderful tribute to the early blind harpers, full of a lively Irish energy.
