A natural minor tunes
As these tables have been designed to be used in reference to the 2001 edition of
Carolan's music, informative alternative titles have been inserted.
The sign ♪ indicates that a lyric can be associated with the tune. D J O' Sullivan is not
always reliable in his ability to match lyrics to tunes.
The sign * indicates that the ascription of the song or tune to Carolan is either doubtful
The sign + indicates that the surviving lyrics associated with the tune are not, or are
probably not, by Carolan.
A total of 11 tunes are estimated as belonging to Bunting's key of A natural minor. Of
the 11 items listed in the table, 5 of them have lyrics associated with them.
Where I believe it possible that Carolan sang certain items, I have placed the relevant
pieces in a key which would fit the proposed vocal range of f-Γ.
Numbers 102 & 118 were also probably originally instrumental tunes.
