The Mona Melodies is a collection of ten songs and three tunes – the first time that music from the Isle of Man ever appears in print.

To celebrate the bicentenary of the publication of The Mona Melodies, Yn Chruinnaght’s Celtic Gathering includes a presentation on its background by Robard y Carsalagh.

Cleveland Medallist Mandy Griffin and pianist Frank Woolley were recorded performing all the pieces from The Mona Melodies and they can be seen by clicking the links below.
