Our Dear Dark Mountain With The Sky Over It (book)

Seán McElwain

Following on from the award-winning album of the same name, this publication shines further light on the musical heritage of the Sliabh Beagh region of Monaghan and Fermanagh. Reproducing for the first time the long-forgotten music manuscript of James Whiteside (1844-1916), it explores the life and musical activities of the Monaghan schoolmaster and presents a unique snapshot of the regions rich musical past.
