Book Of Rights

Nice little jig from O’Neill’s DMOI, #60. A friend said it sounded like Rose in the Heather, which is a fair comparison I suppose, but something about it I like. It can be fun to play around hitting two open rolls (for fiddlers, I reckon) on the D notes at the first and third phrases of the A part…the DED would turn into a rolled D2 note for you notation junkies.
