This is my arrangement of the old Irish tune Amhran na Leabhar (Song of the Books). My mountain dulcimer arrangement of this tune is available in my store.
This old Irish tune was written by a schoolmaster who loaded his precious Irish language books onto a ship for transportation to his new school. The ship struck a rock and and sunk, along with all the books. This is an Irish Aire (Lament) about the loss of his books.
