I reach for this again & again & again. Absolutely gorgeous. An instant classic.
I think the first tune on track 10 is Cooley’s Hornpipe. Doesn’t seem to match jig time, nor does it correspond with the Killaval tune that I know.

Listening to her recordings over and over again, I think what makes her flute playing so unique is the way she punctuates the melody without actually interrupting its flow. Sheer magic!
Brown Creeper, the Killavil on track 10 is definitely a jig and is the same one I know by that name from several other sources. Are you sure you have the right track?
A different version for the southern hemisphere?
Hmmm must be listening to a different version, coz track 11 is Danny Boy/Londonderry Air and no 10 is definitely Cooley’s Hornpipe (plus another one).
Did they release a different version in New Zealand?
As yet unlinked 2nd tune Track 9 "An Lurgad" above
would be Luradan’s jig (tune 1851)
lovely tune any way you say it.
