The Irish folk song and national anthem of British Northern Ireland, Londonderry Air, is one of the most widely-known songs in the world. Various lyrics have been attributed to the tune including "The Confession of Devorgilla," "Would I Were Erin's Apple Blossom O'er You," and the most famous hymn, "Danny Boy." Although the lyrics may vary, the phrases remain long and lovely making this arrangement an ideal choice not only for concert repertoire but also as a warm-up chorale.
