Evoking Ireland

The exuberant and melancholy aspects of traditional Irish music make it well-suited to the moods of film scoring. In honor of St. Patrick's Day, David Garland presents movie music tinged with the color of the Emerald Isle.

We hear from Max Steiner's "The Informer" and Victor Young's "The Quiet Man"; John Williams' scores for "Far and Away" and "Angela's Ashes"; Mason Daring's music for "The Secret of Roan Inish," Paddy Maloney's for "Agnes Brown"; and more. Plus, music from two films based on works by James Joyce: Alex North's "The Dead" and Stanley Myers's "Ulysses."

Just a word of good and sound advice:

One should watch using video clips from YouTube, and other internet sources, as most of these clips (features, features segmented, trailers and music tracks) are still under copyright. These do not fall under "fair usage policy" and YouTube is doing their best to delete these their servers.

Kust recently, Megaupload was closed by the FBI for copyright infringement.
It was not a freedom of speech issue as most are erroneously led to believe by not knowing the facts.
