Brian Boru's March

Brian Boru's March, Finbar Furey


An ancient march , in a 6 note minor scale, celebrating the battle at Clontarf. This is a transcription of the superb Finbar Furey version on his album "Tommorrow We Part". Irish marches are usually in this 6/8 time rather than the more usual 4/4/drill, which gives them a much lighter touch.The origin of many jigs is an older march tune.
