This programme gives an interesting survey of traditional Irish melodies and modern compositions in the same vein. The earliest published specimens of Irish folk-music appeared in the ' Fitzwilliam Virginal Book', but it was not till near the end of the eighteenth century that Irish folk-music was collected in bulk by Edward Bunting. Thomas Moore 's famous ' Selection of Irish Melodies', with his own words to the airs, came out in ten parts between 1808 and 1934.
