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.

Father Dollard’s

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
