Four comments

This great tune comes from the John Moore MS, Shrewsbury c.1830. Works well played straight or swung (lots of triplet ornamentation potential!). The B part sounds a lot like another tune, but I can’t remember which…

also in the third and seventh bars it can be nice to play c natural, then c sharp in the next bar

Deja Entendu?

I hear fragments of "Morpeth Rant" in the "A" part, and fragments of "Soldiers Joy" in the "B" part … 🙂

Phillips’s, X:2

A nice version from the North East, untitled in the John Moore of Tyneside manuscript of 1841. Also recently aquired the title "William Southern Clark’s Hp" due to its untitled occurrence in the Welsh MS of that name from 1869.
