The Lost Ring

I picked this tune up from the excellent "Tuned Up" album by Brendan Mulholland, Brendan Hendry and Paul McSherry. I does seem awfully familiar but I’ve been unable to find it. Really nice tune though. Sorry, once again I bought the album from itunes so don’t know if the tune is trad or not, can anyone help?

The Lost Ring

Meant to mention, these guys play it half a step up in G# on an Eb flute. Great tune for the flute.

There’s a bit more than a hint of Brian Boru there.

Brendan composed the tune after his wife lost her engagement ring in paris. After a while they got a message the ring was found and she made a trip back to paris to collect it …

B-part hick up

btw, there’s a small mistake in the B-part: it starts off with EFG B2B (and not EGA).
