Get Up My Darling And Come With Me

This version of Get Up My Darling and Come With Me is from a handwritten manuscript collection of "Old Irish Airs" produced in 1842 by the Irish folklorist Henry Philerin Hudson and now in the Boston Public Library. I’ve reproduced it exactly as found there, except the manuscript has no indication of tempo. It seems to be rather a rare tune: I can’t find it on this site, at least under this title, though an internet search returns a few recorded and printed versions.

I’ve included an adaptation of this air in my composition for solo flute Three Old Irish Airs; anyone interested can find an audio file of it (generated with software as a demo) at:
