Fantasy on Irish Tune from County Derry - Conductor's Score
This famous melody is known by many different names, “Danny Boy,” “Farewell To Cucullain,” “Londonderry Aire,” and of course,“Tune from Irish County Derry,” . The tune was collected by Miss Jane Ross of Limavady, in 1855, from the book entitled The Ancient music of Ireland, ed. Petrie.
This is one of the most recorded songs of all time and is a work of timeless beauty.
Democratically conceived in theme and variation, Kerr's arrangement features creative orchestrations that are lush and satisfying to play and to hear!
