pastorpest My Lagan Love (43) RE: My Lagan Love 21 Sep 00


Irish composer, Herbert Hughes, was the person who married the poem to the aire. Another music/poem wedding of his is Salley Gardens. His mixing and matching of poetry and traditional Irish music is always worth a careful look.

And I agree with those who want the third verse sung! Why mess with great poetry. The version I know is the one including the line about stirring my foot to go.,
