The Linnet’s Chorus (waltz)

I learned this tune from the playing of two piano accordion players which I recorded in West Yorkshire last year. I don’t know much about the tune, but I believe Marcus Hernon composed it. It’s followed by another lovely waltz called "The Beautiful Goldfinch": https://thesession.org/tunes/5684

John Walshe, flute and Pipe player from Vancouver, played this tune last night at Dentry’s, and what a gorgeous tune it is. First thing this morning, I wrote to Marcus Hernon for his bird tune book. YAY!
