Star of the County Down Voice Sheet Music

Star of the County Down - voice students will enjoy this fun,vigorous, and beautiful Irish sheet music. 

Some pieces of music seem to spread like wildfire through a group of musicians, and this free vocal sheet music will do that with your students too!

If you want to hear --and see! -- a fun rendition of this song, complete with fiddle, pipes, and drums, watch the "Orthodox Celts" perform "Star of the County Down" on the YouTube video below.

Vigorous, humorous, and very musical, my students and I have watched this video many times!


Here is Star of the County Down vocal sheet music:

I have used big chords in the piano left hand to help propel energy into this song.  But if I had only ONE vocalist singing, instead of a group, I would not use such big chords - or at least they would be played softly!

When I have a really terrific piece like this that is also a song, I usually end up giving it to my pianists, guitarists, and singers alike.  Oh, and fiddle students too!

They all benefit, and frequently end up playing it together.  You can find piano versions of Star of the County Down here, and guitar tabs here.

I have to thank a local fiddle and guitar teacher named Dan for introducing local musicians to this great piece! You'll thank him too. 

If you are interested in a fancier arrangement with more chords, plus lyrics to a Bible verse written to this melody, check out this page, "For God So Loved the World", at my new site, Sing The Bible Story.
