The Edward Bunting Digital Harp Collection

In 2016 Music Network gathered ten of Ireland's leading harpers in the studio of the Irish Traditional Music Archive to record melodies collected by Edward Bunting (1773–1843) and published in his 1797 "A General Collection of the Ancient Music of Ireland [Volume 1]".

These recordings, and the printed volume were to become the source of inspiration for a commission awarded to internationally acclaimed artist Aideen Barry by ITMA and Music Network in 2020. Oblivion / Seachmalltacht / ᖃᐅᔨᒪᔭᐅᔪᓐᓃᖅᑐᑦ, a multimedia installation opens today Friday 16 September 2022 at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris, having premiered at Limerick City Gallery of Art in December 2021.

ITMA and Music Network are now delighted, during September and October, to share the original 2016 sound recordings made by Laoise Kelly, Eilís Lavelle, Máire Ní Chathasaigh, Anne-Marie O'Farrell, Mary Louise O'Donnell, Teresa O'Donnell, Úna Ní Fhlannagáin, Dianne Marshall, Tríona Marshall, and Claire O'Donnell. The tunes will be shared in batches following the printed order in the 1797 publication.

In a blog to accompany this playlist, you can access more information about the project, the harpers, and access interactive scores and staff notation for the individual tunes so you can learn them yourself. The tunes were transcribed by Jackie Small.

They were recorded in the ITMA Studio by sound engineer Donncha Moynihan (The Rise Studio).
