The Fairy Tree
This song was also written in 1930—by Doctor Vincent O’Brien, who had been choirmaster to John McCormack when the singer was still an unknown student. O’Brien dedicated the song to the tenor’s wife. It reads: ‘To Lily. Countess McCormack. In kind remembrance’. This captivating piece contains traits of paganism and Christianity—a duality often found in the Celtic tradition.

from notes by Robert White 1995
