Gaelic song books
As well as having a solo repertory, from earliest times the Gaelic harp was used to accompany songs. Much of the old Gaelic repertory survives and has been published, but usually in obscure places, and without its significance being indicated. These books offer song lyrics and musical scores that come from or are related to the early Gaelic harp and song repertory.
