Danny Boy - F. E. Weatherly

Danny Boy - F. E. Weatherly

arr. Desmond Earley for mixed choir

Danny Boy is arguably one of most popular anthems of Irish America, and is often sung at funerals and in remembrance of loved ones. With lyrics penned by the English lawyer and lyricist Frederic Weatherly (1848-1929), the unforgettable melody, the ‘Derry Air’, continues to resonate around the world.

Desmond Earley’s evocative arrangement expands from a solitary voice (‘Oh Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling...’) to the vivid colour of upper voices in close harmony. Expanding to a full a cappella choir and a tenor solo, the work in its entirety reveals a hauntingly intimate expression of this much-loved text.

This piece is delivered in PDF format as a digital download with a minimum order of ten copies.
