According to Alfred Moffat (Minstrelsy of Ireland, 1897), this air was composed by English organist Jonathan Blewitt, who, at the time of its composition, between 1811–14, was musical director of the Theatre Royal, Dublin. It was most likely first produced as a jig for stage dancing, and was later set to the words “Barney Brallaghan's Courtship” by Thomas Hudson.

Allemanda by Corelli

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 10:00:00 GMT

This is the second movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata No. 5 in B-flat major, published in 1685. Like the other Op. 2 sonatas, this is a sonata da camera (“chamber sonata”) for two melodic instruments (e.g. two violins, or two flutes) and basso continuo. It was intended not only for professional musicians, but also for the private enjoyment of refined amateurs.

Thanks to Mario for contributing this piece!




Ich grolle nicht

Sun, 11 Feb 2018 10:00:00 GMT

This Lied is taken from Dichterliebe (“A Poet's Love”), the best-known song cycle by Robert Schumann. Composed in 1840, it sets to music 16 short poems by the famous German poet Heinrich Heine.

I bear no grudge, though my heart breaks.
Love lost forever, I bear no grudge.
Though you shine in diamond splendor,
no ray falls into the night of your heart,
I have long known it.
I truly saw you in my dreams
And saw the night in your heart,
And saw the snake that devours your heart.
I saw, my love, how very miserable you are.
