Paul O’Shaughnessy and quite a few other regulars at Hughes’ in Dublin were of the opinion that this tune would originally be a strathspey. Has anyone here come across the strathspey setting?
This is Miss Ramsey, albeit with just 2 parts and in a slightly altered version. And this would back up what Markus has said as I’ve heard Miss Ramsey began life as a strathspey or highland. Now to dig up the source.
