Colm Ó Lochlainn’s Claisceadal songsheets of the 1940s

19 June 2013,  A Chairde / Dear Friends,
Our newest tranche of Interactive Scores consists of the melodies of Colm Ó Lochlainn’s Claisceadal songsheets of the 1940s, sheets that he produced initially for an Irish-language singing group in Dublin. These sheets are available in facsimile here, along with information on Colm Ó Lochlainn and An Claisceadal, and the interactive scores are available here.
ITMA is aware that some would-be users of the its interactive scores are experiencing difficulties in accessing them. This arises from issues of compatibility between their browsers and/or operating systems and the Scorch facility as developed by the Sibelius company, matters that are outside the control of ITMA. Users should consult for the latest help. We trust that software developments in hand will soon resolve these issues.
Try also our last tranches of interactive scores: melodeon- and accordion-related melodies from the Irish America of the middle decades of the twentieth century. They are set from three sources: How to Play the  Globe Accordeon Irish Style, arr. James C. Morrison (New York, 1931); Jerry O’Brien’s Accordion Instructor for the Irish-Style Accordion, arr. Jerry O’Brien (Boston, 1949); and Irish Folk Dance Music, comp. and arr. Jerry O’Brien (Boston, 1952), and they are available here.
And remember:
  • The Inishowen Song Project microsite, a partnership project of the Inishowen Traditional Singers’ Circle and ITMA, funded by the Inishowen Development Partnership and launched last month, is available here.
  • Late-Night Opening: ITMA is now open every Thursday night until 8.00 pm.
  • Saturday Opening: Our next Saturday opening will be on Saturday 20 July 2013, 10.00 am to 5.00 pm.
  • Social Media: You can follow ITMA on Twitter @ITMADublin as well as on Facebook.
  • Digitised Materials: The ITMA is continuing with its existing bi-monthly programme of publishing new tranches of digitised materials which are available here.
  • On-Line Catalogue: Entries are available here.
With best wishes,

The Staff of the Irish Traditional Music Archive / Taisce Cheol Dúchais Éireann
