Anonn Is Anall

This is the original version of the lullaby ‘Anonn is Anall’ from the Feis Ceoil collection of Irish Airs. The tune was collected, like much of the material, in Co. Wexford in the late 19th century.

Anonn Is Anall, X:2

This transposed version in G was popular among older pipers, including Seamus MacMathuna, the piper from Coolree just outside of Wexford. I think Peadar Broe recorded it on The Drones and the chanters in the 70’s.

Track #7, John : https://thesession.org/recordings/338?tune_id=22210
I created a link and added the title as recorded on “The Drones And Chanter”, one of the first LP recordings of Irish music I ever bought. A very simple, but melodic wee tune.

Thanks for that Kenny. I had checked the recordings after my posting of the tune and saw it listed without an automatic link. I learned it from ‘Jimmy Mac’, as we referred to Seamus MacMathuna back about 1975 I’d reckon….yikes!
