    Lilli Burlero-for brass choir-it's amost too late for St Patty

    While searching for old tunes, I discovered this song-I was familiar with-
    and an interesting tale for this St Patrick's day.

    First appears in 1641 in Ulster. Richard Talbot (1630-1691), a Catholic and royalist, had been made Earl of Tyrconnel after the Restoration and King James II later appointed him Lord Lieutenant of Ireland (1686). He pursued strong pro-Catholic policies. Even after James was deposed in England Tyrconnel governed Ireland in James' name. Irish Catholic forces were eventually defeated by William. English and Irish Protestants took up the song as their melody during that time.

    I think you captured the spirit of the tune. A very interesting song. There is so much music from time-past that is still worth listening to today. Thanks for posting.

    Thank you Jay,
    Some of †he old music is really well-writ†en. Getting the
    right instruments just polishes the "jewels."

    A largely strong arrangement of this, Gary;
    good choice of instrumentation.

    I think I might have a second look at some
    of the lower voicing, perhaps.

    Best,
