The Elfin Fairies
Oh harp of Erin
The Farewell Song
The pulse of an Irishman
Oh! who, my dear Dermot
Put round the bright wine
From Garyone, my happy home
Save me from the grave and wise
Oh! would I were but that sweet linnet (duet)
The hero may perish (duet)
The Soldier in a Foreign Land (duet)
He promised me at parting (duet)
