The Wexford Carol


This download includes two versions of The Wexford Carol, one for a large harp, and a transposed and lightly edited version suitable for therapy harp. A traditional Irish carol, it re-entered the repertoire due to the efforts of William Grattan Flood (1859-1928), organist at at St. Aidan's Cathedral in Enniscorthy. More recently, it was popularized by Loreena McKennitt. Set simply to accommodate the necessary (and easy) lever changes, this upbeat carol, it is sure to be a hit this Holiday season!
