I learnt this lovely tune at the Dutch Tionol in 2013. Although it is English it is worth trying out. I really don’t know what key it is in so I just filled in something.
The Duke Of York Troops
Yes, it’s a great tune. I’ve been playing it a while on D/G melodeon. Sharon Shannon recorded it on what was ( I think) her first album. In the Sussex tune book and William Winters Quantocks tunebook under slightly different names. Oldest source I know is William Aylemore’s manuscripts from around 1800. He lived in West Wittering just south of Chichester, West Sussex. Expect a few scowls at sessions though if you play it :)
It’s a lovely tune, thanks for posting it :) I think it’s in G, because playing it with C#s sound really strange, and all three parts ending on a G is a pretty good hint :)
Yeah I guess it is. I chose Gmajor is that the correct one do you think?
