Some Idle Comments on The Reconcilliation
The Reconcilliation is published as hornpipe in O’Neil’s Music of Ireland and as a reel in O’Neil’s 1001. When played as a hornpipe I think this pairs real nicely with the Ryan’s/Cole’s version of Humphrey’s Hornpipe. Another bit of trivia, the O’Neil’s version of Humphrey’s Hornpipe is pretty much note for note The Reconcilliation.
Nice version of this played after The Kid on the Mountain at Celtic Connections 2009 at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dF9lTH7M9kc&feature=related
