Jack Campin Lyr Req: Give Me Your Hand / Tabhair Dom Do Lámh (64* d) RE: Lyr Req: Give Me Your Hand / Tabhair Dom Do Lámh 26 Sep 20


Using ITMA on an old phone via 3G is nearly impossible. I gave up on trying to read their copy of Bunting. One thing that didn't add up with the edited version was the title - I thought Bunting used the Latin one?

Given the deep divergence between early copies of the piece, I wonder if it makes sense to think of it as a "tune" at all. Maybe a solo harpist would be expected to restructure the phrases on the fly, as you find in Arabic music and jazz - if there was no song text to follow, you could do your own thing. The antithesis of session playing.
