BEETHOVEN—INSPIRED BY SONGS FROM THE BRITISH ISLES: Music, love, and wine. Bonny laddie, Highland laddie. I'll praise the saints with early song. Sally in our alley. Sunset. Faithfu' Johnie. Behold, my love. His boat comes on the sunny tide. Enchantress, farewell. The pulse of an Irishman. To the Aeolian harp. O Charlie is my darling. Duncan Gray. To the blackbird. 'Tis sunshine at last. Cease your funning. Oh sweet were the hours. Save me from the grave and wise. Farewell bliss and farewell Nancy. Love without hope. Farewell thou noisy town. He promis'd me at parting. The Monks of Bangor's march. Robin Adair. O swiftly glides the bonny boat. Sad and luckless was the season. Come draw me round a cheerful ring. The sweetest lad was Jamie. Come, fill, fill, my good fellow (Review by James Camner)
