Sheet music for harp and voice
"’Tis pretty to
be in Ballinderry,
Pretty to be in
“Tis prettier to be on
bonny Ram’s Island,
beneath a tree.”
A lovely, traditional song from the West of Ireland,
arranged for harp and voice. It is a lament, with the refrain “Ochon”
(“Alas!”), sung by a girl whose lover, Phelim, left her to emigrate to
America and was lost at sea.
The sheet music includes words, melody, chords, and
arrangement for the lever or pedal harp, and like all harp music, it can
also be played on the piano. It is 8½" x 11", 4 pages, and
printed in black on ivory paper. Level: easy to intermediate; in the key of
C with no accidentals. $3.00.
