Thread Name: Lyr Req: Wexford Carol (in Irish)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Irish Language Wexford Carol
I don't recall the name of the singer and I could kick myself for not trying to transcribe it. I have been told that carol-singing is not considered an Irish tradition, however there are some very nice Irish Language religous songs. Joe Heaney sings a song he called OÍCHE NOLLAIG, which seems to be a fragment of THE CHERRY TREE CAROL.
