Re: Dublin Porter

It’s amazing how few comments are on this tune! It really is a great one, in an understated kind of way; pity it took me so long to realize it. I like the somewhat hornpipe-like ending of the first part, as well as the "G"-"C"-"D" chord modulation in the first part, and the modulation to Ador for some of the second part. I wonder about the ancestry / relationships of this tune…
