"The Dawning of the Day" (Irish: "Fáinne Gael an Lae")
is an old Irish air composed by the blind harpist
Thomas Connellan in the 17th Century.
An Irish-language song with this name (Fáinne Gael an
Lae) was published by Edward Walsh (1805-1850) in 1847
in Irish Popular Songs and later translated into
English as The Dawning of the Day.
Although originally written for traditional folk
instruments, I created this arrangement for Concert
(Pedal) Harp and Flutes (second flute optional).
