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.

Lough Leane is the largest of the three lakes of Killarney.
The River Laune flows from the lake into the Dingle Bay to the northwest. The lake's name means "lake of learning" probably in reference to the monastery on Innisfallen, an island in the lake which was a centre of scholarship in the early Middle Ages.
Duration 3½ 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:
1. Jaunting Car - Goodmusic GMCO196
3. Killorglin Fair - Goodmusic GMCO198
