As many will soon notice, this Irish melody is most famous with the words to "O Danny Boy", a favorite with performers and audiences alike. The text, "I Would Be True", by Howard Arnold Walter, gives new depth and meaning to this lovely tune. As is usual with music that comes from the people, or "folk" music, a wide range of interpretations is possible. This setting should incorporate the conductors sense of timing in the use of rubato, ritards, accelerandos, crescendos and diminuendos, all toward the end of elucidating the text to its fullest extent.
