This arrangement features only the first verse of this traditional Irish folksong. Instead of treating the whole song, this piece paints an aural picture of young Molly Malone selling her wares through the streets near the water’s edge as she moves like the wandering melody of the oboe line. Listen out for the sound of her shells dropping into her basket at the end. Listen to Newcastle’s Echology choir sing this live. This piece is also available for SSA with piano.
