There are in every generation those who shrink from the ultimate sacrifice, but there are in every generation
those who make it with joy and laughter and these are the salt of the generations."

- Patrick Pearse, a.k.a. Padraig Pearse - a leader of the 1916 Rebellion
(10 Nov 1879 - 03 May 1916)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   We're still celebrating this week with Irish songs.

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suiAOjTlFdA - Bonnie Woodgreen

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeZeUy3doxk&NR=1 - Bonnie Woodgreen - John Fisher School Choir - BBC Choir Of the Year 2008 - Due to the amateur quality of the recordings, rarely do I carry school choirs, but this is an absolutely flawless performance.

 


HOMEWORK:

From http://www.alliancemusic.com/product.cfm?iProductID=410 - 03/12/09:

"'Bonny Wood Green' is a ballad from World War I, still sung in Irish pubs today. The Irish were unenthusiastic about entering the war on the British side, but once the decision had been made there were surprisingly large numbers of volunteers. The divided loyalties of the Irish soldiers cannot have made their ordeal in the trenches any easier."
