Minstrel Boy (The) Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
An emotionally stirring and inspirational song, the words of "The Minstrel Boy" were written by Thomas Moore (1779-1852) who set it to the melody of "The Moreen", an old Irish tune. It is believed by many that Moore composed the song as a memorial to several of his friends he had met while a student at Trinity College and who had participated in the 1798 rebellion of the United Irishmen.

The Minstrel Boy to the war is gone
In the ranks of death you will find him;
His father's sword he hath girded on,
And his wild harp slung behind him;
"Land of Song!" said the warrior bard,
"Tho' all the world betrays thee,
One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard,
One faithful harp shall praise thee!"
