Yes, a lovely recording. We had the cassette, thanks for reminding me to chase up the CD…

etienne.farand ~ what is your transcription taken from? You might consider setting it out in the usual 4-bar phrases for notation. It’s also appreciated when comment is also left whenever a tune is added here, to inform us and show the tune that added respect?

Miss Doyne’s Fancy, X:2

"Miss Doyne’s Fancy" was published by Maurice Hime in his Hime’s Collection of Country Dances for 1810, No. 4, (Dublin, 1810), page 1. It is clearly the basis for the reel which acquired the local name, "Corriga Grove", in the tradition of south Co. Leitrim, John Lee’s home area.
