The Green Shores of Fogo

| /
Stephen Hatfield
3-Part Treble a cappella
The Green Shores of Fogo bears marks of Irish provenance, although its musical origins were lost before Kenneth Peacock collected the song from Mrs. John Fogarty in 1952. The tune, which Peacock considered one of the most beautiful modal melodies he had ever heard, has attracted more than one set of lyrics, and is also known in Newfoundland as “The Blooming Bright Star of Belle Isle.” Duration: ca. 3:10.
