Swave N. Deboner Tune Req: What's the name of this tune? (28) RE: Tune Req: What's the name of this tune? 07 Mar 05


Mudguard:

When I sounded out the new version of the tune in your 05:55 PM post of 5 March, the first thing that came to mind was the American version of "Away in a Manger." But the second part of your tune almost sounds like "The Bard of Armagh." Since Mary in Kentucky thought precisely the same thing, I've got a hunch that you might have a few notes misplaced in your example, and that the song you're thinkig of is indeed, "The Bard of Armagh." Also, "The Bard" would be more likely a tune played on the tin whistle than would be "Away in a Manger." Have a listen to the midi at the link below. I'd be curious to know if Mary's and my hunch is correct.

Cheers,

SND
