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.

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.
