    Excerpt from Broad-Sheet Ballads: Being a Collection of Irish Popular Songs

    Our popular songs in English begin with translations from the Gaelic. The people before the Famine had music as part of their lives, and they were constantly sing ing the songs out of their great traditional stock. When English began to be used familiarly in a district the songs most Often sung at the celidh, the dance and the wake were translated. The words that took the place of the Gaelic words kept the rhythm of the music. One might describe the process of translation as agradual transference from one language to another with the music remaining to keep the mould. Sometimes the song was left with alternative stanzas in Gaelic and English, and sometimes Gaelic words were left as a refrain. Originals and translations remained side by Side, and one was only a little more or a little less familiar than the other. The mother ofcarleton the novelist preferred to sing her songs in Gaelic, saying that the English words with the Irish tunes were like a quarrelling husband and wife, always at variance. The gradual transference left certain typical forms in anglo-irish popular song. For instance, there is in many of the pieces given on the ballad-sheets a rhythm that comes from an association with Irish music On the blood-crimsoned plain the Irish Brigade nobly stood, They fought at Orleans till the streams they ran with their blood, Far away from their homes in the arms of death they repose.
