Bonnie Shaljean O'Carolan's Air (33) RE: O'Carolan's Air 04 Apr 19

[Tried posting this a minute ago without luck]

Yes, it's a traditional song air, which both Michael and I know of as being English, As Sylvie Was Walking (which is not to say there couldn't be an Irish version floating around). The tune in the singing penguins book is slightly different, but the Paret one is clearly a version of it.

Now, the question is - is the melody Marilyn refers to in the French book the same as this one? If not, what is the one she wants, I wonder? Lots of stuff gets attributed to Carolan that isn't. But it's always lovely to have them brought to attention anyway.

Thanks for the mention, Mick! Cheers...
