Thread Name: 'All the dear Spinning Eileens' (Irish harpists)
Subject: RE: 'All the dear Spinning Eileens' (Irish harpists)
Elsewhere at the Mudcat Cafe, I have been adding to existing threads, or starting new threads, that are relevant to my remarks about the Gael Linn anthology compact disc, in that they are song-lyric threads.
Let me see if I can run down the "Amhráin Ghrá" list of songs.

1. An Draighnean Donn: had to open a new thread, with the lyrics as sung by Máire Ní Scolaí.
2. Seoithín Seothó has its own existing thread.
3. Eibhlín a Rún -- WHAT A MESS. Nobody before me had submitted the very antiquated Gaelic lyrics of this particular version to Mudcat, so I had to start a new thread. This, even though Mudcat's Digital Tradition has SEVEN separate entries for "Eileen/Aileen Aroon": none of the seven accurately present the original Gaelic. So now there is a new thread. This song has been recorded by Máire Ní Scolaí (two verses) and Mary O'Hara (three verses).

4. Bharr a gCnoc -- gets a mention, but not its own thread.

5. A Spailpin a Rún: opened a new thread.
6. Éamonn a gCnuic: has a thread already.
7. O Bhean a Tí: now has two threads (oops).

The eighth track is not a traditional song, and has no thread. No thread for the ninth or tenth songs I don't think.

11. Mo Mhuirnin Bán -- can't find this lyric anyplace at all at all.
12. Máire Ní Eidhín: existing thread.
13. Sí Bheag, Sí Mór: existing thread.
14. Bhear mí ó: existing thread
15. A ógánaigh : opened a new thread.
16. Ard ti Chuain: existing thread.
17. Róisín Dubh: existing thread.

Sorry I can't, if I could I would, create links/clickies to these other threads.
