Londonderry Air (O' Danny Boy) Piano solo

Uploaded on Jul 14, 2013

8/11/2015 - Converted to Version 2.0.2 (Mellow Yamaha Grand Piano)
4/29/2014 - Worked on the dynamics to bring out the melody more. Increased the tempo a little. Cleaned up the score by making invisible all the pedal markings.
7/14/2013 - This fine arrangement for just piano was found in an old songbook copyrighted in 1937. I would think it would now be in the public domain.

This is fantastic! thank's for bringing this into my view!
Hi, Thank you for sharing this music sheet. I've liked the tune of this song since I was a kid. now I'm 47 and just started learning piano. I have a basic question about note C flat on treble staff, how to play it?
i saw the markings but do they actually make a difference to the actual peice? just wondering so if it does i might try and use some
Nice marking of dynamic and speed making it more musical.
Hello, I have one question if you don't mind... With the music score here, I notice that the piece starts with 3 parts texture, then constantly shifting between 3 to 4 parts texture. So I'm wondering if this piece was arranged in 3 parts or 4 parts texture?
As I commented when I uploaded it on 7/13/2013, I found this arrangement in an old songbook published in 1937. It is entitled "Robbins Mammoth Collection of World Famous Songs", edited by Hugo Frey, and came down to me from a collection of sheet music formerly owned by a deceased relative. Inside the title page it states that Hugo Frey was a "foremost arranger in this specialized field...of songs that are internationally renowned." After playing it I was struck that while not that difficult, the arranger gave it just the right amount of "texture" to make it sound rich and full.
The change of speed really makes a difference. Fantastic!
