“Planxty Drury” C: Turlough O’Carolan ~ at 70 - 75 beats per minute

This particular setting transcribed from the following:

"Rince: Complete Irish Dancing Set - First Steps And Beyond"

track 17: "Planxty Drury"

“Rince: Complete Irish Dancing Set - First Steps And Beyond”

I’m still hoping to trace notes for these tracks, as to the artists involved, and for any variations on titles for tunes… Any help is welcomed and appreciated…

Plangstigh Druraigh

Edward Bunting in the 1796 edition of his collection of ancient music for the harp said that Carolan’s planxties required "no labour or assiduities" -He ‘concentrated’ on that after he’d established his reputation!
It was a safe statement to make 58 years after the blind harper/harpist passed away!
This tune, under the joint title: "Plangstigh Druraigh" ‘Planxty Drury’ is No 10 (p6) in the said edition.
