Program Notes

Down by the Salley Gardens is a poem by William Butler Yeats published in the The Wanderings of Oisin and Other Poems in 1889. The tune is an old Irish air. A salley is a willow tree, and a weir is a low dam head. Commonly, water flows freely over the top of the weir crest before cascading down to a lower level.

- Program Note from score


The union of this glorious traditional Irish folk song with the compelling poem has been popular for generations. This expressive setting is lyrical in nature and really displays the expressive and somewhat melancholy nature of the endearing melody.
