Thread Name: Edward Bunting - The Ancient Music of Ireland
Subject: RE: Edward Bunting
Is Bunting's "Give Me Your Hand" the way it's usually played nowadays? The oldest sources (early 18th century) call it "Da Mihi Manum" and have rather different structure - it's as if it was subjected to the same sort of recomposition on the fly you get in Arabic music.
