"The Mountains of Mourne" for Flute, Oboe & Strings
Uploaded on Oct 25, 2013
This song tells of a plain simple man from the countryside of Ireland, who goes to seek work in London but misses his homeland.
The English Lyrics (from Percy French) are:
Oh, Mary, this London's a wonderful sight
With people here working by day and by night
They don't sow potatoes nor barley nor wheat
But there's gangs of them diggin' for gold in the street
At least when I asked them, that's what I was told
So I just took a hand at this diggin' for gold
But for all that I've found there, I might as well be
In the place where the dark Mourne sweeps down to the sea
Although this work was originally written for Folk Instruments, I created this arrangement for Flute, Oboe & Strings (Violin, Viola & Cello) and it is best played using the "GeneralUser GS.sf2" Soundfont by S. Christian Collins Software (http://www.schristiancollins.com/generaluser.php).
