Here is a question for you wise ones....
I have found several references stating that the tune "St Patrick's Day" appeared in Playford's. Once of these was by that noted scholar Dr George Petrie, though he doesn't say which edition. I have only managed to get hold of the 100 odd tunes that made up the first 4(??) editions and can't find anything that sounds as though it might be the same tune... so. dear friends..
Anyone got a complete set of the 500+ tunes or better still, know which tune the likes of Petrie et al were referring to?
