Humours Of Tulla

I’m a little surprised that this one isn’t here. Maybe it is, but under a different name?

Speaking of names, we call this one ‘The Tulla’ not to be confused with , a tune that we call ‘The Kilmaley’. The Foinn Seisiun book 1 gives ‘Humors of Tulla’ as an alternative title, so that’s what I’m going with to avoid even more confusion.

Here indeed.

Look at the fifth setting (by Slainte) in the the link you said "not to be confused with".

You don’t miss much, do you Weejie? :-)

Looking at the last two comments (at present) it looks like Slainte posted that setting as a separate tune and the two got merged at some point. I’m pretty sure these are two distinct tunes, though.

"I’m pretty sure these are two distinct tunes, "

As far as that entry in the database goes, only the first setting is significantly different - and, IMO would warrant a separate entry. All the others are variants of this one.

This is definitely already here!

You’re right Weejie. What a mess! The first setting on the other page is the Kilmaley/Glen Allen followed by five versions of The (Humours of) Tulla, with the possible exception of setting 5. Not sure what to make of that one.
