Caoineadh na dTrí Muire
Sheet music for harp and voice; part of the Irish
Folk Songs set
Apostle, have you seen my bright love?"
"I saw him just
now in the power of his enemies."
The title of this song,
"Caoineadh na dTrí Muire," means "Keen (Lament) of the Three
Marys," but in fact it is about the sorrows of only one - the Virgin
Mary - at the Crucifixion. "O who is that fine man on the tree of
suffering?" "Can it be you do not know your son, little
mother?" Very beautiful and deeply moving, this version includes the
original Gaelic words and an accurate, very singable English translation -
6 verses in each language - as well as the melody for voice, chord symbols,
and arrangement for the lever harp. The sheet music is 8˝" x 11",
4 pages, and printed in black on ivory paper. Easy to intermediate. $3.00.
