dulcimer Ancient Irish Songs (31) RE: Ancient Irish Songs 03 Apr 99


Bruce O.--Here is what I read so far: "Dierdre's Lamentation" is said to be of the 15th century. However, I've only seen note of English language versions. The tune was published by O'Farrell in 1810, followed by Bunting in 1840.--So you ar e saying that the 15th century is not to be taken as factual; that the tune has no actual history before that time or could have been an English tune published in Ireland in 1810? --found MS evidence of 1688 that "Lilliburlero" was an Irish song (as some early printed copies state), but that's all I know of Irish songs prior to 1700.--I thought that Callino reference was 1580? Not trying to question your scholarship, just confused.
