Ailen aroon an Irish Ballad Sung by M.rs [Kitty] Clive at ye theater Royal [Drury Lane, London. Aug. 3, 1742] This and another edition of about the same date listed in BUCEM, p. 294. BUCEM lists another later edition printed in Dublin about 1770, as sung by 'Sigr Savoi at the Rotunda.' A copy with music, crediting Sigr Tenducci with singing it, was printed in Dublin in <<Exshaw's London Magazine>>, 1769. Althogh Exshaw's magazine was largely pirated from the London edition, the song was not in the 1769 issue of <<The London Magazine>>. The same song was printed without music in a songbook <<The Charms of Melody>>, Dublin, 1776. This probably stems from the singing of one of the two Italians mentioned below. see EILAROO.NOT WBO Apr98
