        A wonderful book with two accompanying CDs by Tomas O'Canainn which provides a host of slow Irish airs which, as a beginner, I find easier to play on the Irish Whistle compared with the fast jigs, reels etc. in other books.

        There are few slow airs books, and many have had key changes, but this, on first run through, sounds like the author has kept the keys true to the traditional instruments. The CD is essential, because traditional music needs the ear too.
