Notes

William Davies (PHH 372) composed KILLIBEGS for use in the British supplement Praise for Today (1975). Davies served on the compilation committee of that hymn book. The tune is named after a fishing village in Donegal, Northern Ireland, where Davies vacationed while he was conductor of the BBC orchestra in Northern Ireland.

This fine modern tune is intended for unison singing. Its singable phrases are supported by a chordal accompaniment that emphasizes the duple meter. Let your voices soar on this melody. Use brilliant reeds on the organ.
