    Hi. I have looked all over the internet for the sheet music of Carolan’s Dream for harp, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Does anybody have it/ have a link to where I can find it. Any music books with it? I am only interested in sheets that include the bass as well as the melody itself.

    “Celtic Harp Solos” (for easy to intermediate) by Kim Robertson has this tune contained in it…Sylvia Woods’ carries this book for $14.95, and I’m sure quite a few others do too, (e.g. Melodys Traditional Harp Shoppe, or might even have this book)…beautiful tune…

    Carolan’s Dream is also known as “Molly McAlpin” or “Mollaí Ní hAilpín”.

    Thanks everyone! I’ll check out the book Celtic Harp Solos. There is no music store where I live that has harp melodies, or even harps 🙁 So I guess I need to look through

    I think there are also versions of this song in Kathleen Loughnane’s book “Affairs of the Harp” and in the Sounding Harps book 4 (the black one) under the name Molly/Maire McAlpin.
    Not sure if these are on Amazon but you can buy them from Morley Harps in England (
