The Seas Are Deep

A haunting tune from Carolan, from the ‘Otherworld’

Re: The Seas Are Deep

I really don’t know how Carolan evokes the deepness of the sea, but this strange tune does that. Donal O’Sullivan’s book on Carolan reports that this tune is not by him for certain.

Re: The Seas Are Deep

More of a slow air than a waltz. I’d say played quite slowly it evokes a very good sea atmosphere. I hope Carolan is the composer as it’s worthy of him (but perhaps it’s atypical!).
