Separation Of Soul And Body

From Donal O’Sullivan’s excellent book on Carolan - one of the "Miscellaneous Tunes", no.201. Not well-known but very atmospheric and well worth playing - though it might be easier in D minor…

No.202 is the much more famous "Sheebeg and Sheebeg" traditionally the first tune Carolan wrote!

Re: Separation Of Soul And Body

Beautiful piece! I love Ronn McFarlane’s performance on "The Celtic Lute."

Re: Separation Of Soul And Body

Beg your pardon, in 2nd comment No. 202 is "Sheebeg and Sheemore" not Sheebeg and Sheebeg.
Benh : will look for Ronn McFarlane’s performance, thanks.

Re: Separation Of Soul And Body

Yes, Ronn McFarlane’s playing is good. Tune played slowly, which feels right (thanks for the suggestion). A fair number of examples of this tune on YouTube.
