Lesson notes

Danny Boy has long been an iconic song we associate with Ireland, although the lyrics we know were written by English lawyer Frederic Weatherly in 1913. The melody goes much further back and was known as Londonderry Air in the mid-nineteenth century.

I tried to keep this arrangement somewhat simple, just adding harmony in thirds and sixths to to the melody, but it is challenging to get through it smoothly and lyrically.
