My Love’s an Arbutus
(No 25), a deliciously fluid, lyrical gem, became one of the most well-known Irish songs in the British Isles. It was also published separately by Boosey in 1890, and, much later, appeared in an SATB arrangement in 1922. It was orchestrated by Stanford (c1888) and sung at his Berlin concert in 1889.
