The Beautiful Isle of Somewhere
is a family song. The Irish part of my dad's family (My grandmother's side) request this song every time there is a death on their side. My great-grandmother and my grandmother both chose it and my aunt and father both want it at their funerals (my uncle being the only one that refuses to have it... eh, he's more of the English snooty than the rest of them). This is the only song that I will link the song to the lyrics. Mainly because this song is not well known and the writer of the song has long since passed (was written in 1897) and I think it's important to know the feeling of this song. The version I have linked to sounds much more contemporary (we sang it and we had it sung via CD by an Irish tenor with the traditional arrangement.) but I can't get the more traditional version for people to hear.
