This tune is known as a ‘piping piece’, and I have followed Liam O’Flynn’s version for most of the tune, however for the air ‘The Lament For The Fox" I have added Finbar Furey’s version as I like his lament the best. I have been hoping to get this in my head so I can play it live. Felix Doran had a lovely version with he chanter making numerous chicken and duck sounds.
Liam O’Flynn recorded Séamus Ennis’s version of this, which was from the Roche Collection - perhaps he knew it traditionally from his father, or they got it from the book. I think Séamus wrote about cobbling it together, come to think of it. O’Neill printed a setting from Touhey who got it from an older piper, that’s basically what Leo Rowsome played but there are a few additional parts in there as well. The versions from the Doherties and Dorans add to the picture. I’ve a tape with O’Flynn playing Leo’s setting, too.
One of Séamus’s introductory sections was the old jig the Hare in the Corn: http://tunearch.org/wiki/Hare_in_the_Corn_(1) I notice this hasn’t been entered here as a tune in its own right, after all the Kerry tunes of that name, and also a 3 part piping jig that was first printed in Ryan’s. O’Neill had a whole section in his book Irish Music: A Fascinating Hobby about the various Hares, and he hadn’t even got to the Sliabh Luachra tunes, either.
