This is a wonderful book. It is not easy to find a good compendium of slow folk tunes - there are plenty jaunty ones - but the old Irish tunes are so individual, so strange in some cases and so beautiful that to have 118 in one book, as happens here, is cause for great rejoicing! The tunes are set out very clearly in largish print, very easy to read, and are conscientiously edited for slurs and phrase-marks ; metronome marks (often very slow) are given for most tunes. My only slight quibble, as I have no Irish Gaelic, is that I would have liked translations of those titles which are in Gaelic. No matter. This is a fine book and very good value.

First of all I don't have any quibble with the content of this book which is excellent. However within a few minutes of flicking (gently) through the book, the glue of the binding cracked and split and the pages fell out in several chunks. Obviously this is undesirable in any book, but in a music book especially the binding is vital - a good music book should open completely flat and remain open when propped on a music stand. I am waiting to hear from Amazon customer service obout this matter, but in my experience they are helpful and accommodating and I fully expect to be offered a replacement. With luck the replacement will not suffer from the same fault.

This book has plenty of lovely Irish tunes, and many in the beautiful Irish language, which is a plus. However, as I bought this for my partner, who is only starting to learn the Irish Tin Whistle, it is perhaps not suitable. However, as I have some knowledge of music, I am able to 'translate' it into 'dots' until their is some knowlege there. It has a beautiful cover to it. The only problem I would have with it is that it is not also in the 'dot' form for beginners of the Tin Whistle and maybe also a CD for those who are not familiar with the tunes. Otherwise a nice buy. If you are going to buy this book, I would suggest making sure (as I did not) that you buy the one that includes the CD's, so you can become familiar with the tunes.

Not really for beginers but provided you can read music and are a reasonably good tin whistle player this is a wonderful book. I'm finding it rewarding digging into the heart of this type of music.
