PREFACE. 11ancient state of Ireland, and conscious of having thus done his best for a subject not onlyintimately associated with the history and antiquities of the country, but very agreeable andpopular in its own nature, the Editor does, he confesses, entertain a hope that the collectionwill be received with approbation by the lovers of music and the learned on both sides of theChannel. Should this be the case, he proposes to re-arrange and republish, with notices ofthe airs, similar to those of the present publication, the two volumes above spoken of. Forit would be his ambition, as he was the first to give to the world a regularly arrangedselection of our national airs, to terminate his labours by leaving behind him a complete,uniform, and, he trusts, very nearly perfect, collection of native Irish music.
