This is tune from the John Moore manuscript of 1839 (as presented in the Ironbridge Hornpipe, edited by Gordon Ashman, and published by Dragonfly Press, ISBN 1 872277 06 3). The spelling of the title is as presented.
It also seems to work well as a slide thus:
T: Murphy Delany
|: GFG GFG GFG B>cd | GFG GFG ABG F>ED |
GFG GFG GFG B>cd | efg dcB ABG F>ED :|
: B>cd ded ded dcB | c>de efe efe edc |
B>cd ded ded def | g>fe dcB ABG FED :|
would be my preference for this one.
Murphy Delany, X:3
This setting appears in O’Farrell’s Pocket Companion for the Irish or Union Pipes, vol. 1, 1806, p. 65.
Re: Murphy Delany
