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 http://www.sibelius.com 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
