Lilting and TuneSongs.
I’ve managed to collect a lot of good music of players of the various instruments, even Uilleann Pipes, Flute and the various Free Reeds. But I’ve noticed that my collection is severely lacking in terms of lilting and "tunesinging".
All I have is two Chieftains recordings, one is them lilting "The Chicago Reel" https://thesession.org/tunes/840 the third tune here at 2:09…
Moira Smiley lilting and singing "The Hawk and Crow"(song), and lilting "The Monaghan Twig"(tune) right after, on her "Rua" album(the recording isn’t listed here).
A recording of Seamus Begley and Jim Murray singing and playing something called "An Seanduine"(it’s black-lettered), a song that sounds like a jig but has an odd time.
And Lasairfhiona ni Chonaola singing and lilting Bean Phaidin, but also in an odd time.
Anyone know where I can find more recordings of lilting? Anything is acceptable, accapella, backed, male vocalist, female vocalist, old, new, it really doesn’t matter as long as it’s lilting. I never really learned how to lilt, I just repeated the nonsense syllables from the recordings I mentioned up top and settled for those. Now I wanna learn more.
(Oh, and if you feel I’m over-complicating things again, and you believe "diddle dot-di, rite-di diddly, dit doo diddle-ah doe" is all I need to know, feel free to say so.)
Also, it’d be nice to get some more recordings of "tunesongs". I’m not sure how many there are, but I know they’re out there. I didn’t know Cailleach An Airgead was a tune, neither did I know Bean Phaidin was a tune, but they’re favorites and I’m sure I’d like more if I heard them. Thanks in advance.
