Score: Three Gaelic Ballads BMC/Tate/1/2/11
Extent: 6 items
Three Gaelic Ballads is a collection of Irish folk songs: 1- The Lake of Coolfin, 2- Hark! The Soft Bugle, 3- Hush Song. There is a rough copy, a working copy, a copy for a pianist with hand-written amendments, a folder of transparencies, a clean copy and a folder containing some lyric sheets with amendments and a brief description. The description states that the first in the collection uses an 'entirely original' setting while the others use words and tunes affiliated with the traditional versions, even if these particular settings are quite free. Although instrumentation is not stated, they seem to be written for voice and piano.
