Jimmy C Origins: Who was Brennan on the Moor? (38) RE: Tune Req: Brennan On The Moor (Variant) 27 Oct 05


Joe,
No luck with he scanner but I have tried to copy the tonic solfa from the book. It's in the key of D.

Hope this helps.


It's of a famous highwayman, a sto-ry   I will tell

d,r/ m .m :m .m /s    :f .m/ m   .r :d   d/ d


His name was Wil-lie Bren-nan and in Ire-land he did dwell

.s   d'   t r' .t/ d: .m :f .s/ ta .l :s .,m m


And on the Kil-worth mountains he com-menced his wild car-eer

.s d" .t r'    .t d'   .m   :f .s/ ta    .,l   ;s   .m /m>br>

Where man-y a wealthy gen-tle-man be-fore him shook with fear

d'    t .l   ;l   .l /l .,t   :d .l s    .l   :s    .f / m



Q.pm.Is there any tune to your source ?. Thanks for the additional verses.

Jimmy
