Celanova Square

This F sharp minor jig was composed by Diarmaid Moynihan of the group Calico and recorded by them on the 1998 album of the same name. This setting is from the playing of fiddler Duncan Chisholm on his 2001 ‘The Door of the Saints’ album. He precedes the tune by wistfully playing through the A part in B minor before beginning the tune in earnest in its original key. The Calico version is rather wonderful too, coming at the end of a set of great jigs.
