The Humours Of Glen

Directly from Gow’s Repository it “Supposed Irish” to be played “Slowish”. Unlike any other setting of Humours of Glen on the Session.

Re: The Humours Of Glen

I’ve always heard this as a version of “Sir Thomas Leixlip the Proud”

It can also be found in a manuscript, but where? I can’t remember, but I’ll keep digging and post it when I remember.
