Smokey chimney

I agree with you, its a good album.

Temple Hill reel

You can also hear a wonderful version of this reel on Ann Heymann’s monumental testament to traditional harp playing " Queen of Harps". It is a _real_ eye opener to those unfamilar with the wire harp. Her setting is similar to the printed one save ornaments. She follows this with the Temple House Jigs in a couple different settings.

A.K.A. The Sweetheart Reel

This is also known as The Sweetheart Reel. Here’s an attempt to transcribe Mary MacNamara’s version (minus the ornaments):

"Last time" (3efg ed BAGB|A8||

It’s called Paul Brock’s on "They Sailed Away from Dublin Bay". Not sure how his name got attached to it but they play it in Ador, 3 parts (each with 16 bars)

P.J. and Marcas Hernon recorded this reel as Colm O’Donnell’s Favourite on their duet album "Beal a’ Mhurlaigh". Few musicians know the "correct" titles.

Someone posted a variant of this tune a while ago: http://www.thesession.org/tunes/6977

Temple Hill

Percy Grainger made a piano arrangement of this tune (an Ador version similar to Lúnasa’s version above), and possibly arranged it for orchestra. He got this tune from Stanford’s edition of "The Complete Petrie Collection of Ancient Irish Music", where it is Tune No 901 in Ador and described as a Cork reel.
