Down by the Salley Gardens

Sheet music for harp and voice


"Down by the Salley Gardens

My love and I did meet…."


A lovely poem written in 1889 by William Butler Yeats in celebration of his love for Maud Gonne and set – by Yeats himself – to the Irish traditional air “The Maids of Mourne Shore.” Here it is presented as sheet music, beautifully arranged for harp and voice.


The music is 4 pages long,  8” x 11”, printed on ivory paper. It includes the words, melody, arrangement for the harp, and chord symbols. Although written for the lever harp, it is also suitable for the pedal harp, and like most harp music, can also be played on the piano. It is in the key of C with no accidentals, and the level is easy to intermediate. $3.00.
