Percy Grainger Orchestra Series
Score and Parts
Composed by:
Percy Aldridge Grainger
Arranged by:
Dana Perna
Instrumentation: Perc: Str

Irish Tune from County Derry is one of the best known of Grainger's settings based on a folk melody. This version, published here for the first time, was prepared for Leopold Stokowski who recorded it in 1950 (omitting the cymbal part). These parts have been carefully combed through to remove errors and to clarify Grainger's parts from which the musicians played at that recording session. Grainger used his own previously published parts to the string orchestra version for that session but he did not put the changes into these parts as has been done in this publication. Also, his wind parts were handwritten and these materials have been clearly annotated, giving dates on the score, in this publication. Grainger's 'blue-eyed English' terms have been placed into this publication as Grainger had wanted (e.g. the published string parts used at the 1950 session were in Italian which Grainger used to save himself time in preparing parts). Even the cymbal part as it appeared between Grainger's score and his handwritten part differed. This has now been treated in a manner which the editor feels best serves the material. Instrumentation: Perc: Str.
