Arrane y Chlean

This is a cradle song from the Isle of Man. It seems to have become popular with choirs in the USA, under the name Manx Lullaby, and sung to the words below:

Oh hush thee my dove, oh hush thee my rowan,
Oh hush thee my lapwing, my little brown bird.

Oh fold thy wings and seek thy nest now,
Oh shine the berry on the bright tree,
The bird is home from the mountain and valley.
Oh horo hi ri ri Cadul gu lo.

However, it doesn’t seem that these words came from the Island.

Re: Arrane Y Chlean

Can you remember the name of the Irish version of this tune?

Tommy McCarthy’s mazurka, X:2

Looking for the title of a mazurka that I’ve learned from the box player and dancing master Timmy McCarthy, I found this tune proposed by Tunepal (at 41 % 😉 which seems closely in relation with the tune that I know.

Re: Arrane Y Chlean

Currently, X:2 is given in D Maj. To me, it plays more naturally (pardon the pun) in D Mix…

Arrane Y Chlean, X:3

Heard this version as an untitled soundtrack. It is very very similar to standard versions of the Lullaby but I like the chords a lot more.

Arrane Y Chlean, X:4

I took settings 2 and 3 as starting points and made a version a bit more like the cello/accordion rendition in the linked YouTube video. I wrote the turns in the B part out as grace notes because I like the C-natural (I believe setting 3, as well as the YouTube shift to mixolydian, whereas many versions stick in D-major - I’m not sure though). I lowered it in some parts because I play viola (will post the alto setting in a moment). I will be tweaking it a little to make one more setting for 2 instruments so the melody can be on violin or viola and a harmony part on viola or cello. It’ll take me a while to polish that up - don’t want to be file dumping like a nuisance so I’ll hold off on the duet until it’s good and ready. Thanks for the good starting points.
