The First part of Lady Dillon (I posted the jig yesterday) A Carolan tune which again shows a strong Baroque influence.

Posted by .

I’ve added the full range version (in F) printed in O’Sullivan’s book.
His source is S., A. and P. Thompson’s "The Hibernian Muse: A Collection of Irish Airs Including the most Favorite Compositions of Carolan, The Celebrated Irish Bard. To which is prefixed An Essay on Irish Music, with Memoirs of Carolan", c 1770 (O’Sullivan dates it around 1786), p.60, No 96.
http://imslp.org/wiki/The_Hibernian_Muse_(Various) .
O’Sullivan altered this setting slightly by way of Bunting’s version ("Miss Dillon and Jigg, by Carolan") in the MSS in Queen’s University Belfast (Bunting also published the tune in his 1796 and 1809 editions of "Ancient Irish Music" under the name "Rose Dillon").
The subject was reckoned by O’Sullivan to be either Bridget, wife of Lord Richard, 9th Viscount Dillon, or, more probably, their daughter Frances. Richard Dillon was the "Lord Dillon" of Carolan’s piece found here: https://thesession.org/tunes/11777
