There is a lot of great Irish music out there, but one that really stands out in memory is this particular tune of “St Patrick Was a Gentleman.” My mom used to play it on the piano from The Book of a Thousand Songs (1918). Another one she’d play from that book is “We May Roam Through This World,” but I could not find a recording that was as slow and pretty as she played it (more like a gentle waltz than a jig).
Happy St Patrick’s Day to all! 🍀
