Taylor’s Cross

I learnt this off the cd They Sailed Away From Dublin Bay by Liam Farrell And Joe Whelan.

The Humours of Bahrain

I don’t know why Farrell and Whelan recorded it as Taylor’s cross because it was written by Paddy O’Brien [Nenagh] and titled The Humours of Bahrain. In fact, the three polkas that appear on They sailed Away from Dublin Bay were written by Paddy O’Brien and have different titles.

Taylor’s Cross = The Humours of Bahrain
All the Way to Galway = The Sheik’s Fancy
The Barna = Emir’s Delight

But thanks for posting. Its a nice tune.
