I did remove the first and second endings, allowing the parts to finish on the tonic by giving the lead-ins instead of 1st and 2nd endings on both parts…

You can also take that fourth measure of the A-part as
~ | B2 e2 E>G | ~ but the possibilities are many. 😉

It has been too long since we played this one. Thanks for the re-acquaintance Mix, much appreciated… I don’t think we’ve ever played the second tune, or possibly didn’t take to it if we did… 😀

Now whether or not we can remember what we’d learned to dance to this, that’s another question. I think we need to plan a summer in Finland. That would be grand, but trying to come to terms with all those declensions, or even finding a decent method for learning Finnish in English, or Welsh, or ~ there’s the rub… 😉
