allegedly another variation on an old tune from Junior Crehan, always wondered if it was named for the Corner House hotel in Camden but someone here will probably know the provenance of it

Corner House

X:3 from the piping of Seamus Ennis, a tune from his father James, known for his composition the Morning Thrush. According to Seamus his father would always kick off a bout of fiddling with this tune, starting on the 2nd part, and that he had no name for it. Arguably it could be considered a tune in its own right, but to me it sounds much like the House, with much of the melody simplified/truncated, especially in the 2nd part.
