Hi, for a competition I am doing I have to sing a ballad of irish origin (slow song). Although I am a soprano, I am really flexible in terms of my range. Any suggestions as to what I should sing? Thanks!

How about this one?

Wind the time on to 13:18 and you'll find Muireann Nic Amlaoibh singing "Leaving Limerick"

Check out songs by Sarah Makem and Margaret Barry, two wonderful Irish singers. There is a new 3 CD set out of Sarah Makem. CDs with Margaret Barry on seem to be quite readily available. Look for songs that are less well-known than Blackwaterside, Margaret Barry's The Half-Door perhaps?

Any one you like and feel you can do justice to. I can't think of any that wouldn't be singable for a female.

Greenwood Laddie . A beautiful tune that can be found in the Peter Kennedy collection of British and Irish folk songs :

If you had seen my dearest , and his eyes that shine the clearest
His lips like the new blood that's new dropped in snow
He is neat tall and slender and his hands soft and tender
He will be my Greenwood Laddie wherever he goes
