"The Ladies Dressed in Garments so Green" is an
anonymous Irish Folk Song Air in 3/4 time and popular
in Ballycastle (in Antrim) about 1840. Long before that
it was heard played on the harp'" (Joyce, 1909). Bayard
(1981) believes the tune resembles "Whistling Mike"
(O'Neill), "Tinware Lass (The)" (Ryan's Mammoth/Cole's
1000), "Pewter Mug" (Ford), and his own
Pennsylvania-collected "Governor Taylor's March."
Although this work was originally written for Folk
Instruments, I created this arrangement for Flute, Oboe
& Concert (Pedal) Harp.
