Collection includes "Star of the County Down" and "After the Battle of Aughrim". "Star of the County Down" is a sentimental Irish ballad. This popular folk tune was the basis for Ralph Vaughan William's Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus. The tune is a pentatonic melody with a romantic feel. "After the Battle of Aughrim" is a beautiful account of the last great defeat of the native Gaelic army in Ireland. Accessible for students, this tune's yearning tonality reflects the sobriety of the war and subsequent loss that inspired this piece. Score and Parts.
