The Rising Sun

Leveret’s (slight) variation on a tune from Daniel Wright’s 1715 manuscript “An Extraordinary Collection of Pleasant and Merry Humours etc.”. The first bar of the A section is played f2 fe df on repeats (but I don’t know a pretty way of showing it).

Re: The Rising Sun

Correction: the first bar repeat is f2 ge df.
