Beethoven's "Irish" Symphony.

Beethoven's magnificent 7th Symphony uses the Irish song "Save me from the Grave and Wise", for the frantic forth movement of this great work.
The sound is unmistakably Irish.
A very wild and exhilarating dance for a Michael Flatley! ?
Today I purchased the Complete Works of Beethoven on 100 CDs! An early birthday gift for meself, I deserve it. :-)
