Today we have numbers 13 through 17 of Beethoven’s Irish Songs, WoO 152. Two of them were set to poems by Rabbie Burns: “Musing on the roaring ocean” and “In vain to this desert my fate I deplore”.
13. Musing on the roaring ocean
14. They bid me slight my Dermot dear (Dermot and Shelah)
15. Let brain-spinning swains
16. Hide not thy anguish
17. In vain to this desert my fate I deplore
