Caoineadh na dTrí Muire

Sheet music for harp and voice; part of the Irish Folk Songs set


"O Peter, 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.
