Chancellor

This is the same tune as the Chancellor on Denis Murphy: Music From Sliabh Luachra though it doesn’t show in the album listing.

I think this plays better as a reel with a couple of minor adjustments.

Thanks for posting that JackB. It is very similar in places to this version I have been working out - recorded by a mate of mine in London in the 70’s

Father Dollard’s, X:8

I learned this version many years ago in sessions in Fife. It definitely needs to be played with a dotted hornpipe rhythm. IMHO it’s more interesting than some of the other versions.
