This tune is from a recording of Danu, I suppose anybody will find another title…

I only know this is not "The Mossy Banks." Pivert, please leave out the wrong alternative title someone added.

The last bar of the A-part sounds distinctly Scots. The rest of it doesn’t particularly, but that’s not to say it’s not.

Ladies’ Pantalettes from Peter Carberry “Traditional Irish Music from County Longford”

A version of this tune is also on Peter Carberry’s "Traditional Irish Music from County Longford". Track #2.
I’ve submitted it as X:2 above.


I can’t change the title of X:2 above, which of course should be "The Ladies’ Pantalettes"
