Winner of the Irish-language book of the Year award, 2013. This is a book for anyone who would like to gain a wider understanding of traditional Irish singing. It contains over 400 traditional Irish sean-nós songs gathered from all over the country. Each song is accompanied by comprehensive background notes on the origins of the songs, the composers, the myriad ways that the songs radiated into the tradition and notes on the people who sing the songs today.Leabhar Mór na nAmhrán contains both well-known songs and less well-known songs. There are big songs and small songs, long and short songs, fast and short songs and new and old songs.'These are the songs that, at times, kept the people alive. Songs that gave comfort, solace, courage, pleasure and hope when times were hard. They were songs to raise the spirit and the people held them to their hearts. These songs are as compelling today as they were in times gone by.'-Micheál Ó Conghaile
