Curtin Manuscript

A 19th-Century Sliabh Luachra Manuscript

The 109 interactive music scores on this page have been notated from a 19th-century music manuscript which comes from the Sliabh Luachra border region of counties Cork, Kerry and Limerick.

[tune titles listed below on left]

The spelling of tune titles in the original manuscript, especially of those in Irish, is erratic; for ease of access, the spellings have been brought here to a modern standard. Some conjectural readings are given in square brackets.

A facsimile of the source manuscript and information about it is available here.
