A different tune to the one already in the database

A tune (traditional I think) hiding in Donald MacLeod’s book No: 6, that may be of interest. Here’s the setting as he has it;

It looks like a version of "Temple Hill". Probably inspired by Percy Grainger’s combination of "Temple Hill" and "Molly on the Shore".

Sorry, "Pere’s" version in the comments on that tune.

Petrie’s “Temple Hill”

Thats very interesting, thanks for that.

Indeed, the second part of this reel is very similar to the first part of "Sleep Soond".
