Turlough O'Carolan (1670–1738) was a blind early Irish harper, composer and singer whose great fame is due to his gift for melodic composition. He was the last great Irish harper-composer and is considered by many to be Ireland's national composer. Harpers in the old Irish tradition were still living as late as 1792, as ten, including Arthur O'Neill, Patrick Quin and Donnchadh Ó Hámsaigh, showed up at the Belfast Harp Festival, but there is no proof of any of these being composers. Ó Hámsaigh did play some of Carolan's music but disliked it for being too modern. Some of O'Carolan's own compositions show influence from the style of continental classical music, whereas others such as Carolan's Farewell to Music reflect a much older style of "Gaelic Harping".

The Mrs. Crofton referred to is Elizabeth Robinson Crofton, who married James Crofton. This tune was composed around the time of their marriage, circa 1732.

James was the third son of Edward Crofton, a Justice of the Peace in Sligo. He fell in love with Elizabeth, the daughter of Captain Edward Robinson. She, however, was Protestant, and his father opposed the match. When James decided to become a Protestant in order to marry her, his father threatened to disinherit him. James replied that he would turn informer and claim a forfeiture of the family estate. His father would not give into the threat. James was "conformed February 20, 1731/2 and filed a Bill in Chancery against his father. James, thereby obtained the family estate. James' two elder brothers left for France. One became an Archbishop and the other Governor of La Hogue. James Crofton died in 1755.

I created this arrangement for Concert (Pedal) Harp.
