An Ríl Dochasach

Carl Hession composition.

This is the original setting composed by Carl, including the chords. Carl is happy to share his tunes in this website, he is kindly giving me the music scores and helping me with the questions that arise in the making of the ABC notation. In his own words, people are free to do what they want with these tunes.
