4th bar corrections: | ed^cd A2 B=c | & | e>d^c>d A2 B>=c |

I forgot to adjust for that c natural, which is not actually shown in the early transcription…

Not this ~ | e>^d>e=c G>ce>g | ~ but this ~ | e>^de>c G>ce>g |

B-part, 2nd & 5th bar ~ there’ s no need to notate that c as natural (=c), the tune being in G Major ~ AND ~ I’d misplaced one of these: > in that second bar… :-P

“The Barrington Hornpipe” ~ C: Thomas Todd ~ S: Alistair Anderson

I first learned this one, ages back, from Alistair Anderson, and the notes he later gave me were the same as in his book. Here’s that, with only the one snap in it:
