ITMA makes Tunes of the Munster Pipers available online

The first 100 tunes from the archive's first publication 'Tunes of the Munster Pipers: Irish Traditional Music from the James Goodman Manuscripts', edited by the late Dr Hugh Shields & published in 1998 are now available as interactive scores.

James Goodman (1828-1896) from the Dingle area of West Kerry, a Canon of the Church of Ireland, Professor of Irish in Trinity College Dublin, and an accomplished performer on the Irish or uilleann pipes, compiled a highly important manuscript collection of Irish traditional music in the 1860s. Drawn to a great extent from the oral tradition of Munster, and partly from other manuscripts and printed sources, the collection was first published by ITMA in 1998.  These tunes add to the growing corpus of interactive scores available online in the ITMA Digital Library.
