The Lark In The Clear Air is a traditional Irish air. Since the 1800s, it has been associated with a poem by the Irish writer Sir Samuel Ferguson (1810-1886), one of the founding fathers of the Irish literary revival. It has been arranged here by Edgar M. Deale for TBarB Three-part Male Voice Chorus, with Piano accompaniment. It makes a perfect recital item for any Male Voice Choir.
Edgar M. Deale (1902-1999) was a twentieth century Irish composer. A former chorister at Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin, he was largely self-taught as a composer. His output was limited to a few dozen original works and arrangements, but his contribution to Irish music is gradually achieving the recognition it deserves.
