Drops of Spring Water
Played after ‘Dever the Dancer’ on Dervish’s "At the End of the Day" CD. This is Bill Black’s transcription.
This tune can also be found in O’Neill’s (Krassen edition) as A Blast of Wind, page 80.
This tune is missing the final measure! I mean it’s in the abc, maybe nobody told Jeremy it’d been updated?
It doesn’t matter whether anybody tells me the abc has been updated or not: I can’t change the sheetmusic. That’s why it’s best to make sure that the abc is correct (by testing it in some abc software) before submitting it.
Good to know! Sorry Jeremy. 🙂
This is used on the ‘Back To Titanic’ cd I was given, on the ‘Jack Dawson’s Luck’ track… It’s not a bad track, though I have no idea who plays it… But on there, they have it listed as Humors of Caledon
