Peter Hope's most famous piece is undoubtedly the beguiling Ring of Kerry suite. This splendid example of the light music composer's craft won the Ivor Novello award in the early 1960s. The three movements are scored for different orchestral forces so we have published them separately in this new Goodmusic edition.
A Jaunting Car, also called jaunty car, or sidecar, was a two-wheeled, open vehicle, popular in Ireland from the early 19th century. It was unusual in having lengthwise, back-to-back or face-to-face passenger seats. The light, horse-drawn cart carried four passengers (although the earliest versions carried more). It usually had a narrow, forward-facing driver's seat.
Duration 2½ minutes
A PACK includes a full score plus a full set of wind, brass and percussion parts plus strings 4/4/3/4/2.

The other two movements of the Ring of Kerry are also available:
2. Lough Leane - Goodmusic GMCO197
3. Killorglin Fair - Goodmusic GMCO198
