The Clergyman's Lamentation: This haunting melody was written by the famous blind Irish harpist, O'Carolan. This Clergyman was sad, as for political reasons, he was not allowed to preach in his own church. Moll In The Wadd: We do not know who Moll was, or what she got stuck in, but this joyful Irish jig certainly released her from whatever it was perhaps a gangster gave her some money?!! The Foggy, Foggy, Dew: This is one of the most famous folk tunes from the British Isles with many different words to describe a rather delicate situations. However this young weaver is sensitive, caring and pragmatic.
