My Love Is On The Ocean

From the family of The New Mown Meadows/The Old Silver Spear, Seán Mháire Mhicilín, Pat Canny’s etc. Sourced from the Traditional Tune Archive, in turn sourced from Howe’s 1000 Jigs and Reels (c. 1867). On first listening to this setting, it instanteously became one of my favourite tunes. I have purposely left in the ornamentation, as it adds fantastically to the setting.

My Love Is On The Ocean, X:2

Again sourced from the Traditional Tune Archive, this in turn sourced from Ryan’s Mammoth Collection (1883). This setting is more directly in keeping with the rest of the family than the first setting.
