Bring out the Irish in you with this lullaby made famous by Chauncey Olcott and Bing Crosby!


SKU: AJM17012 Category: Tags: ,


Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral (That’s an Irish Lullaby) is a classic Irish-American song written in 1913 by composer James Royce Shannon. The original recording of the song in 1913 by the famous Irish tenor Chauncey Olcott was a #1 hit. The song was later revived by Bing Crosby in the 1944 movie Going My Way. Crosby’s single sold over a million copies and peaked at #4 on the Billboard music charts. The title of the piece was inspiration for a line in Dexy’s Midnight Runners’ Come On, Eileen.

James L. King III’s arrangement for early intermediate performers uses 6/8 time and stays in C major. The hands move around a little, and there are a few accidentals. This is a great piece to keep on hand for any Irish-themed events.

Key: C Major

Mood: Gentle, relaxing

Pedagogy: Accidentals, hand position changes, 6/8 time
