Re: Hillsborough Castle
The Derek Bell CD sleeve notes say :
"This set of hornpipes is from the repertory of David Curry, the conductor of the BBC Northern Ireland Orchestra. Derek Bell played in this orchestra for years, and these 3 pieces are his tribute to the memory of David Curry". The notes also say that with the exception of1 Sean O’Riada composition, all other tunes [ presumably including this one ] are traditional.
Nice tune, I like it.
