Help with airs
I have a mind to spend some time on the airs in O’Neill’s Music of Ireland (1850). At this point they still seem pretty mysterious although working through the Breathnach CRE books has helped. I’ve been told that they are melodies that were used for poems. I wonder if anyone has matched O’Neill’s Air section to known poems. Is there some book or study that can get me closer to how they would have been used originally?
