Eibhlí Gheal Chiúin / Fair Gentle Eily
Traditional Irish Music for Harp Ensemble
arranged by Gráinne Hambly & William Jackson

Arranged for 2 harps or harp ensemble.

This beautiful air dates back to 17th-century Ireland. It was collected by Edward Bunting at the Belfast Harp Festival in 1792 from the harper James Duncan. The full title is Eibhlí Gheal Chiúin Ui Chearbhaill (‘Fair Gentle Eily O’Carroll’). The original version is a song with lyrics in Irish, and it was also set with English words by the Scottish poet Thomas Campbell, titled ‘Lord Ullin’s Daughter’. The melody line itself is very easy, so it is possible for students to just play the melody line if they wish.
