Traditional love song written by Sir Harold Boulton. Ireland’s first President, Douglas Hyde is credited with the Irish Translation. I got this song from the great Bobby Beare of Bandon, County Cork who also taught me whenever I turned up at the Cork School of Music in Cork City! I studied there for a number of years under Bobby and we became very good friends. Bobby always said that The Gentle Maiden was representative of Ireland and another allegory / aisling (vision of Ireland). This air is also quite popular in traditional music sessions.
Arranged by Dennis Cahill who is also on Mandolin, Bass; Jimmy Moore, Guitar; Sue Demel, backing Vocals.
