I believe this tune is composed by Séamus Shannon - I took it from the playing of Séamus Creagh on ‘It’s no Secret’
Lament for Oliver Goldsmith
A lovely tune, I heard Raymond Roland playing it from The White Hart, Fulham Broadway. Good old Saturday night days in the late sixties. I still see Liam Farrell occasionally. Sorry, but is your ABC text faulty, it seemed to be about a quarter of the B part ?
the Le Cheile record Lord Mayo ? had Raymond playing it.
The rest is repeats of the first part (in different order, but all the notes are there) with little variations, but I thought it better not to put those in so keeping it clearer. It’s always nicer to put in your own variations. keep an eye on this space and I will publish the rest soon, but like I said, all the notes are there. I Would love to hear the other versions, I’ll keep a lookout for those. Thanks.
OK, I’ve put in the missing bit. I’ll Make a version with ornamentations and variations and post it here soon.
