I don’t have the recording you transcribed this from, G.M., so I’m not at all questioning your ear, but I’ve more often heard bar 2 of the B Part as |e2 fg2 f efd cBA|.

Nice tune.

A slightly different take on it…

added Dervish as setting

I added PJ’s Dervish transcription as a setting… hope that is OK.
