Her mantle so green

Seamus McGuire does a version of it on The Wishing Tree, on Green Linnet records

Celtic Harp, on Past Times records, also has a version.

+/- the same melody than ‘cad é sin don té sin’…
with a nice second part

Her mantle so green

No other version will do for me after hearing Saemus McGuire’s sweet, soulful instrumental version on The Wishing Tree.

Friendly Pipes/Whistle version

Re: Her Mantle So Green

Fine version on ‘Jackie Daly & Séamus Creagh’ record 1977, concertina and fiddle:
‘A brat Chomh Deas Glas’

Her Mantle So Green, X:4

This is the version in B minor as played by Séamus Creagh and Jackie Daly on the LP they made together. It is played slowly as an air not as a waltz.
