The Man Who Died And Rose Again

Someone mentioned in a discussion that The Man Who Died And Rose Again wasn’t on the site.This is from Robin Williamson’s Fiddle Book.It’s the only jig I know with a Christian title,and the only one with just one part.

Yeah, Williamson makes that claim about a paucity of tunes with Christian titles in his book. But what about the Reverend Brothers Jig, Musical Priest, the Crosses of Annagh, the Priest’s Leap, and Maudabawn Chapel?

Man Who Died and Rose Again

I don’t consider Robin Williamson’s fiddle book to be a good source. Are there any other examples of jigs with just one part?

Re: Man who died and rose again

I used to play this little tune in the key of ‘D’ just goes to show you how different it can sound in ‘C’.

A glance through O’Neill will show a number of tune titles referring to Christianity, including Father X’s, Christmas, Easter, etc.

Regarding the length of this tune, I just wonder if it was originally a 2-parter, and somehow the second part got forgotten - a little unlikely, I know. Anyway, it would be a nice exercise to compose a convincing 2nd part for this tune. This wouldn’t be the first time this sort of thing has been done - it has a respectable ancestry in all kinds of music. Don’t forget that O’Neill was reputed to have completed some otherwise incomplete tunes!

Minor point in re/ "Crosses of Annagh": it’s a reference to a place (a crossroads just south of Miltown Malbay): I believe Jr Crehan’s home townland.

Speaking of Christian names, what about the slow air, "Death and the Sinner?!

I just saw Kieran O’Hare play a two-part tune called The Man Who Died and Rose Again, which he said was a version of Saddle the Pony. Unfortunately I don’t remember it well enough to comment on the relationship to this version…
