The History of The Irish...Worldwide
A song I learned from my father, who learned it from his father.

Bravo, John. Go raibh maith agat for sharing. Tell us more about your Dad and Granddad!
Maith thú, John! Did you know that Cruiskeen Lawn was a favorite of Mozart? He even worked it in to Gloria Excelsis, one of his masses
I am definitely going to have to go back and listen to that section with a different ear. Or is this another Sig Spaeth moment, like saying Yes, We Have No Bananas is based on the Alleluia Chorus
It was something that I carried away from my musicology class back twenty-five years ago. There is a refrain in which is sung: "We'll quaff the well-filled jug."... which my professor said was Mozart's nod to Cruiskeen Lawn
Fascinating, Bit. If one does a Google search on this topic, any substantive results?
Gerry, other than a passing reference to it, not so far as I can find...I will have to dig through my dusty footlockers and see if I can find my notes...Packrat that I am, I might still have them
