A Chairde / Dear Friends.  We’re delighted to have reached a notable milestone today with the upload of our last tranches of Interactive Scores of tunes from the published music collections of Patrick Weston Joyce (1827–1914) of Co Limerick, one of the great collectors of Irish traditional music.
Today’s contributions are Tunes 701–800 and Tunes 801–842 from Joyce’s magnum opus and final music publication Old Irish Folk Music and Songs (1909). As with all of his music collections, this publication includes song airs and dance tunes that Joyce remembered from his childhood in Co Limerick and it constitutes part of a unique documentation of Limerick and Munster music, as well as containing music from many other parts of Ireland.
Some 970 tunes published by Joyce are now permanently available from ITMA as interactive scores, as well as facsimiles of his published collections.
