Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738) was a blind Celtic harper, composer and singer in Ireland whose great fame is due to his gift for melodic composition. Often called “the last of the Irish Bards”, even though there were traditional Irish harpers living as late as 1792. Carolan is considered a national treasure — his compositions are still often played during a session and are also highly regarded. Focusing on Carolan’s works first will bring you high rewards as a player. By the way, though it is correct to say “Turlough O’Carolan” when giving the full name, when no first name is given one should simply refer to him as “Carolan.”.

Although not a composer in the classical sense, Carolan is considered by many to be Ireland's national composer. Harpers in the old Irish tradition were still living as late as 1792, and ten, including Arthur O'Neill, Patrick Quin and Donnchadh Ó Hámsaigh, attended the Belfast Harp Festival. Ó Hámsaigh did play some of Carolan's music but disliked it for being too modern. Some of Carolan's own compositions show influences of the style of continental classical music, whereas others such as Carolan's Farewell to Music reflect a much older style of "Gaelic Harping".

Captain O'Kane/O'Kain (AKA: "Cailin tighe moir," "Captain Henry O'Kain," "Giolla an Bimhoir" is believed to be a composition by O’Carolan. Captain Henry O'Kain who died of his wounds 'on the banks of the dark rolling Danube.'" O'Sullivan's attribution is based on a comment by Hardimann (who said O'Carolan wrote it) and because of stylistic similarities with other O'Carolan works. O'Neill (1913) quotes Patrick O'Leary, an Australian correspondent, who wrote that the Captain of the title was "the hero of a hundred fights, from Landon to Oudenarde, who, when old an war-worn, tottered back from the Low Countries to his birthplace to die, and found himself not only a stranger, but an outlawed, disinherited, homeless wanderer in the ancient territory that his fathers ruled as Lords of Limavady." The earliest printing of the tune Captain Francis O'Neill could locate was in James Aird's 1788 Selection of Scotch, English, Irish and Foreign Airs (vol. 3), although he also found it (under the title "Captain Oakhain: A Favourite Irish Tune") in McGoun's Repository of Scots and Irish Airs, Strathspeys, Reels, etc. (Glasgow, 1803) – the same title and presumably the same tune was printed in Alexander McGlashan's 1786 collection. Gow also gives "Irish" as the tune's provenance. Piper O'Farrell's 1804 setting of "Captain O'Cain" was entered into the mid-19th century music manuscript copybook of County Cork uilleann piper and Church of Ireland cleric James Goodman.

The song "The Wounded Hussar" was written to the melody by Alexander Campbell (O'Sullivan gives his name as Thomas) and appears in Smith's Irish Minstrel (Edinburgh, 1825). It was also included in Surenne's Songs of Ireland without Words (Edinburgh, 1854). The Scots poet Robert Burns wrote his song "The Chevalier's Lament" to the tune of "Captain O'Kean".

Although originally composed for Traditional Irish Instruments, I created this interpretation of the "Captain Henry O'Kain" for Oboe & Strings (2 Violins, Viola & Cello).
