I learnt this lovely HP in Milltown Malbay in a pipes beginners course from Nollaigh McCarthy around 1990.
Love it!

Aggie White’s

Hi,

This is a lovely tune. I learned it as Aggie White’s and found out later that it’s a Sean Ryan tune called The Swan (in the first book of his music - Hidden Ireland). It’s written down in A but I’ve never heard anyone play it in that key. Wait, now that you mention it.. I got it from Darach de Brun, who’s also a piper - AHA!

Sorry, lots of typos in my first version - wrong octaves especially. I’ve corrected now the abc, maybe Jeremy is doing us the favour to adjust the sheetmusic, too.

Truly, a quirky version of "Scotland the Brave" qv. ("quantum vis" for Latin lovers)

Rudolph Valentino, perhaps?
