Nancy Hurrell has arranged this fine selection of tunes by Turlogh O'Carolan for harp, flute and recorder ensembles. Her full and interesting harp accompaniments support the melody instruments, making these great for performing.

The original 1796 version of Carolan's Concerto is included in both solo harp versions as well as concerto form. The range of pieces include ancient modal harp airs (Bridget Cruise, First Air) to the elegant High Baroque (Mrs. Judge) to lively planxties as jigs and hornpipes.
The pieces are in the keys of C or 1 or 2 sharps, except for the two harp solos, which are in 3 flats. There are no fingerings The PDF is 76 pages, including information about O'Carolan and his music, and a page of performance notes. The ensemble pieces include a score, then the harp part, and then the individual melody parts.
