I’ve listed this as "Gan Ainm" as I don’t know the title, although I’ve no doubt it will be recognised by members here.
It appears as the second tune in a set entitled "William Plunkett Set" in a recording of O’Carolan’s tunes by Butch Baldassari and John Mock.
If you’ve heard this recording I’d love to know the name of the third tune in this set also.
I’ve had a quick look through Donal O’Sullivan’s Carolan collection, but can only find the first tune in that set, Alastair. In there it is called "James Plunkett", while it is in Bunting as "Young William Plunkett" (without attribution to Carolan). I may have missed it - sorry I can’t help further.
Thanks Nigel - I should have said the set on the recording was entitled "’Young’ William Plunkett Set".
The tune I posted here certainly sounds like Carolan but I don’t recognise it as such…
The title of this tune was kindly communicated to me by Mr White - from what he tells me I only have half the tune here. I’ll add the rest when I can.
Donal O’Sullivan’s book shows a "Miss MacDermott" aka "Princess Royal" (See #87 http://www.oldmusicproject.com/occ/tunes.html ) but that doesn’t seem to be the same tune. Otherwise, can’t find a "Planxty Nancy McDermott" listed as a Carolan tune.
Claire Egan doesalovely version of this in gminor into the bunch of keys on her album Turning tides, i will endeavour to writeit out…
