Subject: Carolan's Fairy Queen
From: Elaine
Date: 08 Oct 98 - 01:01 PM

Hi!

On Chris Norman's 'Man with the Wooden Flute' CD, the 17th cut is 'Fairy Queen' by Carolan. I am trying to find this tune, but apparently there is more than one. It is not the one in Bunting's collection, nor that on the Tuneweb page.

Does anyone else know where I can find it?

Thanks, Elaine

Donal O'Sullivan. 'Carolan: The Life Times and Music of an Irish Harper', #195. O'Sullivan notes considerable differences among copies, but Bunting's tune is a version. The one O'Sullivan says is best is the earliest, cataloged as that in NIT, in the Irish Tune Index on my website. (Fairy Queen)

You can also find it on JC's tune finder.

http://www.thesession.org/tunes/display/243 This links to the session where you can find it in proper notes and ABC. If you want to hear a really good version of it try listening to it on the CD "Long forgotten" by Cara

To follow Eric the Viking's response, the sheet music is also on the Cara thread. Oakley did it and he is very proud of it.

Carolan's Fairy Queen - info & midi on pyberta website
This is the info they give for the tune:

"Bean riogh na síbhruíne. According to Bunting, Carolan has only adapted and expanded an original and ancient air named "My love and Treasure" or Ciste sa stór."

Lovely arrangement of a lovely tune on the midi file, too.

Now I'm going to listen to their other midis. A healthy dose of Carolan on an early Sunday morning (in Oz). What a way to start the day!

Helen

helen...
i went to the link and the lyrics are not in
english!
tried to google it for translation
but nothing came up.
do you know the translation?

to everyone:
when you hear someone play Fairy Queen
is it usually just instrumental?
i love Chris Norman's version.

will try to find the others.

And the moral of the story is, don't hit enter when you are in the "From" field because it posts the message.

Hi again,

I forgot to say that my copy of Bunting is well & truly buried under a houseful of boxes, books, kitchenware, furniture, etc etc in our garage. We have temporarily moved out of home, so I can't check the veracity of the Pyberta website's claim that Bunting actually wrote that.

Priestess, it's a little unclear on tat site about whether the lyrics belong to the original tune, or to Carolan's version of it, and sadly, no, I couldn't translate the lyrics to save my life.

Helen

Well, it looks like my blunder wasn't posted as a message, like I thought it was.

A bit more googling shows that the title Ciste sa stór has been translated as "Coffers nor stores" and there is some information here:

two-thirds down the page - more info

As I recall, Bunting's writing style is disjointed like the above info so it could be a direct copy from his book. I don't know whether the information will help much, though.

I downloaded Cara's version of Fairy Queen and LOVE IT!
Thanks to you all for helping me find another
version. It's very enchanting to say the least !

Got to meet Chris Norman at the Indianapolis Early Music
Festival this month. He is an amazing artist. Will have to check
out Cara's tour schedule. Unlikely they will come to midwest
USA though, right?

Thanks again for the Fairy Queen discussion. Its now on my
top 10 list!
