This is kind of a strange tune. I heard it on Jeff and Mychael Danna’s "A Celtic Romance: The Legend Of Lidain & Curithir" CD. I think it was paired with Saddle the Pony and Good Christian Men we will rejoice played like a jig. This is actually sort of a fun whistle tune if you can get all the accidentals in.

It’s called "The Hills Of Ireland". It’s in O’Neill’s. You can edit your title if you like, by going to "edit details".

Oh, I figured that was what the Danna brothers called the set. It’s been driving me crazy what the name of this tune was.

A few years ago, I found a YouTube video of the Good Christian Men Rjc/Saddle the Pony/Hills of Ireland set (though Saddle the Pony was called "Red Stockings." I had wondered where it was from though. Now I know!

Actually, I don’t think that set with Good Christian Men Rejoice is from the Danna brothers, because their song "The Hills of Ireland" sounds different to that. After looking around, I think the Good Christian Men Rejoice recording likely comes from here:

track 5, although there are a few uploads of it on YouTube that claim the set is by Enya, which it really doesn’t sound like it is.
