David Lyr Req: Choinleach Ghlas an Fhómhair (35) RE: Lyrics Coinleach Glas An Fhomhair/Translation 24 Aug 99

Brian O'Rourke has published two sets of books/tapes (Irish Academic Press, Blackrock, Co. Dublin), each with a dozen or so songs, including the Irish lyrics, a literal translation into English, and a poetic and singable English version (as well as the music and commentary). The tapes have recordings of sean nos singers singing both the Irish and English versions. My singing friends in Ireland say they are brilliant singable translations, ach tá beagán Gaeilge agum. The first is Blas Meala: A Sip from the Honey Pot. The second, which contains Coinnleach Glas an Fhómhair, is Pale Rainbow: An Dubh ina Bhán.

I don't have the time to enter the words right now, but I'll send them along a little later.

Thanks for the stimulating questions.
