Si Bheag, Si Mhor by Carol M. 2 Months, 3 Weeks ago
I hope I am posting this in the right spot- I finally got a half decent video of this Pete Huttlinger arrangement of Turlough O'Carolyn's old Celtic tune, Si Bheag, Si Mhor, and I wanted to share it with you. It's in DADGAD, on my GSMini w/Elixir Lights. And I have no clue what the title means, ha!!
BTW I am STILL in withdrawal from IGC 2017. I can't wait for next time, hoping to get the vacation time approved for 2018
Hope to see y'all next summer
Sí Bheag, Sí Mhor", the background tune, was the first song written by Turlough O'Carolan (1670 - 1738). The gist of the song is that a great contention arose between the rival queens (of Shebeg and Shemore). They first engage in verbal warfare, each claiming superiority over the other. Then ensues a battle between their partisans, fought on the plain between Shebeg and Shemore, the like of which has not been seen since Troy. Finally a truce is called, in view of the hostile approach of the faerie hosts of two neighbouring hills and the two sides unite in face of the common danger."
