William Percy French was one of Ireland's favourite sons and his influence on traditional Irish Music can still be felt today. His lyrics are still humorous, ironic and perceptive, but never mocking or scornful, and these exemplify his love of his motherland. Representing some of the finest examples of this genre, this volume contains forty-seven of his most famous and enjoyed songs all lovingly arranged by James Nealy, with melody-line, complete lyrics and chords. Includes notes on the inspiration and background of each of the songs and a commentary on the life and talents of French himself. This is a wonderful reference book as well as a compilation of his magnificent works for enjoyment. Songs include Eileen Oge, The Emigrants Letter and ‘Who said the Hook Never Hurted the Worms?’.
