PW Joyce Interactive Music Scores
66 Online Melodies from NLI MSS Joly 25

This new addition to the centenary ITMA PW Joyce Irish Music Microsite of 66 melodies from the unpublished Patrick Weston Joyce music manuscript Joly 25 held in the National Library of Ireland completes the National Library's cooperative project with ITMA of publishing online, in facsimile and as interactive music scores, the three Joyce music and song manuscripts held by the Library.

Facsimiles scans of NLI MSS 2982, and 2983 and Joly 252 are already available in their entirety on the microsite, courtesy of the NLI. A total of 548 melodies have now been set from them by ITMA staff as interactive music scores for audio playback and online reading. These constitute all the uniquely Joyce material in the manuscripts, as distinct from the items contained in them which he had copied from the manuscripts of other collectors. Each score is also available in PDF format for printing.

Joly 25 contains song airs, some song words, and dance tunes 'Collected chiefly in [Co] Limerick in July & Aug. 1856'. The work of collection was carried out mainly in his native area while Joyce was on holidays from his work as a teacher. In the style of his mentor, the Dublin collector George Petrie, he notes the sources of the pieces and makes brief observations on some items.
