This special Lá na Cruite | Harp Day lecture by Dr. Mary Louise O‘Donnell is interspersed with harp music from harper Dr. Teresa O’Donnell and sets the scene for musical life in Dublin, and the role that Edward Bunting played in it, between 1818-43. Living in Baggot Street, he held posts as organist at St Stephen’s Church/The Pepper Cannister in Mount Street Crescent and, later at St George’s in Hardwicke Place. He was also involved in the Dublin Harmonic Institution, all the time working and advocating for his harpers’ music to be published.
