This setting begins with a lovely countermelody composed by Angel Band Violinist, Cathryn Norris, to the tune composed by Ireland's National Composer, Turlough O'Carolan (1670 - 1738), performed by the Angel Band. This jig, along with two other compositions, honors the head of the O’Connor family. Maurice O’Connor made his fortune in England as a Barrister and returned to County Roscommon where he purchased Coote Hall and restored it to the O’Connor family. He then managed to secure his ancient family lands and manor house, Cappagarrane (Gortnamona) near Tullamore in County Offaly. This cheerful piece was written to celebrate the restoration of the O’Connor family holdings lost during the English Plantation Settlement.

Composed in honor of Elizabeth Keating Power, or Mrs. Power, Fanny Power’s mother. This tune is more commonly referred to as O’Carolan’s Concerto and is one of his best known creations wherein he affected a singular but lasting marriage of the Irish tradition with the Baroque.

It is unfortunate that nothing is known about Planxty Crilly , for if the tune is any reflection of Crilly’s character, he or she must have been a generous benefactor.

This spirited drinking song was composed in both verse and music by Carolan for his wealthy patron, George Brabazon of New Park (afterward called Brabazon Park) in Kilconduff, County Mayo. We learn from the verse that George Brabazon was a young bachelor at the time of this tribute to him by Carolan. Album, Come under My Protection. © 1998-2010 The Angel Band, all rights reserved.

Many of O Carolan’s tunes were paeans to his patrons, those who provided him with food, lodging, money, and, of course, a few drops of the pure. Brabazon of New Park was a young bachelor residing in Kilconduff, Co. Mayo. performed by the Angel Band, Album: County Meath — An O'Carolan Sojourn © 1998-2010 The Angel Band, all rights reserved.

A traditional Irish "Slip Jig" (9/8 time), The Butterfly, has been ascribed to both Dublin fiddler, Tommy Potts, and to that most prolific of traditional composers, anonymous. The song is also used in the film, The Secret of Roan Inish (Seal Island) in which metamorphosis is also presumed.

Door on Daniel Street refers to the Press Room pub in Portsmouth where the band grew from a weekly session. From the liner notes on our first CD Album, Instrumental Music in the Celtic Tradition: "Door on Daniel Street was written for the band. This piece, composed and arranged by bassist Lind, is a masterful blend of Celtic progressions interwoven with those of jazz." What the liner notes don't mention is the 5/4 time signature of the tune. The Angel Band at the time: Sam Goodall, fiddle; Jeff Lind, bass; Bob Frost, banjo; Emery Hutchins, concertina & bodhran; David Behm, guitar; Mary Paul, harp; Mark Rockwood, mandolin; Bob Paul, hammered dulcimer.

The Road to Lisdoonvarna, Merrily Kiss the Quaker’s Wife and The Blarney Pilgrim. The Road is also known as “All The Way To Galway.” Played here as a jig, it is also played as a polka and a slide. The Quaker’s Wife is of Scottish origin and may have roots in the 14th Century, long before there were any Quakers. High in a tower of Blarney Castle is embedded a magical stone which is visited by countless Pilgrims who come to kiss the said stone for its charms and blessings
