Tunes of the Munster Pipers, Volume 2 : Irish Traditional Music from the James Goodman Manuscripts / Hugh & Lisa Shields, eds

This important new book publication from the Irish Traditional Music Archive completes a two-volume edition of the manuscript collection of Irish music written by Canon James Goodman in the 1860s and preserved in the Library of Trinity College.

The volume contains 536 song airs, dance tunes and other forms, along with extensive documentation. Goodman's tunes provide a unique insight into the musical traditions of the Irish-speaking southern regions of pre-Famine Ireland. The first volume of the edition, edited by Hugh Shields in 1998, contained 515 tunes obtained by Goodman from ‘Munster pipers &c.’.This second volume includes all other Goodman melodies from oral sources, along with unpublished melodies from manuscripts to which he had access; it omits those copied from printed sources. It is accompanied by a substantial online index of research information on the whole Goodman collection.

James Goodman (1828-896), a native of Dingle, Co Kerry, was a canon of the Church of Ireland and Professor of Irish at Trinity College Dublin. But he is now chiefly known as the complier of an outstanding manuscript collection of some 2,300 traditional tunes held in the Library of the college.

Dr Hugh Shields (1929–2008), a native of Belfast, was Senior Lecturer in French in Trinity College Dublin and a Fellow of the college. He collected, studied and published traditional song and music from the 1950s. Lisa Shields, a player of concertina and uilleann pipes, is a graduate in modern languages from TCD. She is former Librarian of the Irish Meteorological Service.

The 515 tunes this volume contains are available as interactive scores here.
