The Mona Melodies is a collection of ten songs and three tunes – the first time that music from the Isle of Man ever appears in print.

To celebrate the bicentenary of the publication of The Mona Melodies, Yn Chruinnaght’s Celtic Gathering included a presentation on its background by Robard y Carsalagh which can be viewed by clicking here.

Cleveland Medallist Mandy Griffin and pianist Frank Woolley were recorded performing all the pieces from The Mona Melodies and they can be seen by clicking the links below.
