Turlough O'Carolan

The Complete Works of Turlough O'Carolan

The background music on this page is Luke Dillon
Sequenced by Barry Taylor

According to O'Sullivan's biography, tunes with an asterik may not be Carolan. Midi files are available for a few tunes. If a midi file is available, you can click on the song title. The midi files for tunes marked with an (s) are a single track melody only, those not marked are full arrangements.

Several of these tunes are off-site, as I have not been given permission to use them here. Therefore I put a link to the Ancient Music Site beneath the name of any tunes located there. The tunes at the Ancient Music Site are all full arrangements and are beautifully done.

Information on the tunes with midi files and gif files appears at Carolan Tunes in Midi Format with Links to Information.

If you wish to use any of these tunes on your web site please read this. You must credit the person who created the midi (the sequencer). The sequencer's name can be found on the Information Page for the tune, which is accessed from here. Web sites or e-mail for the sequencers can be found at the Carolan links page.
