String Orchestra Conductor Score & Parts


      Irish Jig and Aire


Drawing from rich Irish musical traditions, this setting combines two well-known folk songs, The Irish Washerwoman and Sheebeg, Sheemore. Here is a chance for your developing group to enjoy two of the best qualities of Irish music: a rousing fiddle tune and a heartfelt melody. For cross-curricular studies, it is rewarding to investigate the stories behind these melodies, one involving a battle of fairies across the mountainous countryside. Accessible and extremely satisfying.
