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.

Here’s my current interpretation, fairly similar tbh.

A bit of shameless self promotion here too (third tune) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgRtmEoi0n4

Re: The Reconciliation

Extensive use of pedal notes in this one,!

The Reconciliation, X:10

Setting in G Major. In my opinion this is the best key to play this tune in a session as it would be very playable for all the instruments. A Major would be a problem for side flutes, tin whistles and pipes because of the G Sharps. D Major would also be a problem because the tune would have notes that are too low for those same instruments.

I avoided the rolls and the triplets in this setting, I tried to make it as simple as possible. As per the melody line, I’m not sure were I got it from, I hope you like it.
