An exploration of musical traditions in Ireland, including keens, work songs, macaronic songs, religious songs, elegies, and political songs. ""One of the strengths of O Madagain's overall approach is his emphasis on song as a dynamic expression of humanity rather than as a static literary or sociological artifact, an emphasis that synthesizes anthropological, musical, socio-historical, and literary concerns.""--An Sionnach
