Re: Clare Concertinas

Track 14 is only the first two tracks; Joe Cunean’s does not appear on the LP recording.

Re: Clare Concertinas

Track 8 (Bonaparte’s) is called The Grand March by Mícheál Ó Súilleabhain on his LP, Cry of the Mountain (CEF 079 on Gael-Linn). That track is magnificently stately, and rousing, with musicians to match. A setting is given in O’Neill’s "Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody" #74, as Bonaparte’s Grand March.
