Si Beag Si Mor by Turlough O´Carolan (1670-1738) - Arranged for Euphonium Trio by Mark Anderson.

Si Beag Si Mor is written over the story of The Battle of the Fairies, which is uncertain when took place ( allegedly ), but must be before 1670 - since Turlough wrote the music based on the story. Here´s the Poem that explains the battle : 

Long long ago in this ancient land, 
A battle took place where two hills now stand. 
And on the plain there lay the slain.. 
For neither the battle was won. 
So the bard did sing of these Fairy Hills 
where bloom the white flowers and daffodiles. 
One big, One small.. 
Si Beag, Si Mor 
And never the battle is won. 
Beneath these hills great heroes lie 
of Red Branch Knights and their ancient foe 
In still of night, the immortals fight 
But never the battle is won. 
And so the harper was told of these Fairy Tales 
Of these Fairy Hills of ancient Gaels 
One big, One small 
Si Beag, Si Mor 
And never the battle is won. 
Twas after the battle the prophet foretold 
No rest would come for these warriors bold. 
Till they unite and fight one common foe.. 
And than would the battle be won. 
So then the harper wrote of these fairy hills 
Where bloom the white flowers and daffodiles. 
One big, One small 
Si Beag, Si mor 
And never the battle is one.
