Matthew Edwards Lyr Add: Songs by Sylvester Gaffney (14) RE: Lyr Add: Songs by Sylvester Gaffney 31 Jul 12

Hi zozimus,

If you start at the ITMA Online Catalogues page, the buttons at the bottom of the page give you the options of searching printed items, sound recordings, DVDs or images. I looked in the Prints and entered "Gaffney" in the Author section - but you can use the 'Browse Choices' button to select from the complete list of authors etc. I got 13 results for my Gaffney query, of which 8 relate to Sylvester or S Gaffney. The ITMA reference numbers are:-
278-SM The battle of Baltinglass
311-SM The Burning of the Abbey Theatre
428-SM The Dutch in Derry
508-SM If You'll Only Come Across the Sea to Ireland
535-SM Irish Soldier Boy
575-SM the Little Old Mud Cabin
703=SM Poor Old Woman
867=SM What the Doctor Ordered

If you reset the search page and search for the title "Sing an Irish Song. Book 8" you should get 2 results (ITMA refs 159-BK and 7349-BK) which lists the 14 songs referred to but without giving any author for them.

I hope this works OK.

If you then search the Sound Recordings for Waltons in Publication Details you can have a field day discovering just how much they issued over the years - and see how many of them you remember!
