MICHAEL BALFE (1808-1870): Ah! Would that I could love thee less, O smile as thou wert wont to smile, Dids't thou but know, Hopeful heart should banish care, A home in the heart, Old friends, I'm a merry Zingara, Le Crépuscule, A merry little savoyard, Killarney, Falling river, Don't let the roses listen, The blighted flower, The green trees whispered, The lonely rose, I'd rather be a village maid, O take me to thy heart again.

Description: About an hour's worth of sentimental, nostalgic songs and ballads which mine a certain vein in the Irish character may or may not be just what you're looking for.
