Composed by Turlough O’Carolan.
Accidental in the last measure?
Love this tune, but the version I’ve heard most often is played with an accidental in the last measure of each part. Thus, the F should be F#… at least according to other recordings I’ve heard and in my opinion. I did a search for other sheet music sources of this tune and found that that, first, it doesn’t seem to be the most common tune out there. Second, from the few other pieces of sheet music I found, the very accidental I’m talking about is most often not noted as accidental at all. Go figure!
Love this tune. I save the accidental for the last time through – it’s a nice way to end it.
Planxty Drew, X:2
Most fiddlers I’ve heard play it something like x:2. Harpers tend to play the 16th note runs. Harpers and fiddlers seem to agree that bar 12 goes Ggg g2. I’ve not heard bar 12 played Fff f2.
