This is the second polka in the first track of the Cnoc Bui CD by Conal O’Grada. I transcribed it from the CD - the staccato markings are, of course, not staccato, but rather a way to indicate where I think Conal is cutting.
I really like the echo effect of the first two bars (and the related other phrases in the tune…). Effectively a trill, but a rhythmic and percussive one?
I’m working on getting this one into the repertoire with the preceeding Church street polka as a set.
Track one on Cnoc Bui by Conal O’Grada - has this preceeded by:
Missing a bar
B part, after bar 1 in 1st ending: | f2 e2 |
Re: The Happy
Another slight change: I don’t think they’re triplets in bars 7 and 8. I also hear one bar differently in the second half.
