The Ancient Music of Ireland: Arranged for Piano
Courier Corporation, 2000 M01 1 - 109 pages
In 3 volumes Bunting (1773–1843) published almost 300 airs and practically single-handedly rescued Irish music from oblivion. The present collection, the last of the trilogy, is enriched by an invaluable 100-page preface and followed by 151 Irish airs arranged for piano, with the Irish names of the airs, their authors, and dates of composition.
