Miss Charlotte Alston Stewart’s

Lovely Cape Breton tune. Decided to look for it once I heard Hanneke Cassel’s version. Found this transcription over at tunearch.

Transcription from Duncan McKercher’s Collection vol. III. p. 4 c. 1830

Didn’t transcribe the last bit, but it’d be nice to have it if anyone knows it.

Added what I caught by ear for the C bit of the AA-BB-CC done by Hanneke Cassel on the recording, just the broad gist of it.
