GUEST,Phil Cooper Origins: Curragh of Kildare/The Winter It Is Past (69* d) RE: Help: Curragh of Kildare 02 May 00


What you heard at a Burns supper was Robert Burns re-working of the song. I believe he titled it the "Winter it is Past." That version was recorded by Jean Redpath on Vol. 2 of her series of Burns arrangements with composer Serge Hovey (I think) that was on Philo. Archie Fisher recorded a version with Garnet Rogers on the one album they did together a few years back. It has a nice tune that way. Though I like the other version as well. Bert Jansch did one on "A Rare Conundrum." Hope this helps. Phil
