Danny Boy is a song whose lyrics are set to the Irish tune Londonderry Air. The lyrics were originally written for a different tune in 1910 by Frederick Weatherly, an English lawyer, and were modified to fit Londonderry Air in 1913 when Weatherly was sent a copy of the tune by his sister.

The first recording was made by Ernestine Schumann-Heink in 1915. Weatherly gave the song to Elsie Griffin, who made it one of the most popular in the new century. Weatherly later suggested in 1928 that the second verse would provide a fitting requiem for the actress Ellen Terry.

GREATVIDI SOÜZ VIDI

Once more with Danny Boy, I applaud the angelic voice of Nina Moskouri that lives up to the Greek vocal tradition. Indeed, she is currently the 'prima vox' Greece. However, Maria Callas, for me, is the 'Prima Inter Pares', the first of all 'prima donnas'. That being so,, the most beautiful voice and interpretation of british song 'Danny Boy' is with the actress and Canadian singer, Deanna Durbin, by the way of blessed memory. No one else.

Weatherly gave the song to the vocalist Elsie Griffin, who made it one of the most popular songs in the new century; and, in 1915, Ernestine Schumann-Heink produced the first recording. of "Danny Boy" Jane Ross of Limavady is credited with collecting the melody of "Londonderry Air" in the mid-19th century from a local fiddle player.

Inspite of the origin of the song..may I qoute "Music is the language of the soul". The lyrics and melody transcends beyond borders.It depicts the undying human spirit and relationships.
