Irish music guitar chords
Early Irish poetry and song has been translated into modern Irish and English by notable Irish poets, song collectors and musicians. The 6th century hymn Rop tú mo baile by Dallán Forgaill for example, was published in 1905 in English by Mary Elizabeth Byrne, and is widely known as Be Thou My Vision. The Blackbird of Belfast Lough (Old Irish: Int én bec; Irish: An t-éan beag) has been notably translated by poets such as Seamus Heaney, Ciaran Carson and Frank O’Connor. Notable recordings of modern interpretations of early Irish music include Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin’s Songs of the Scribe, various music albums by choral group Anúna, and the recordings of Caitríona O’Leary with Dúlra and the eX Ensemble.
