Thread Name: Tune Req: For Ireland I'd Not Tell Her Name
Subject: RE: For Ireland I'd Not Tell Her Name
Beside the tune, Stanford-Petrie, #1237 (For Ireland I'd not tell her name) listed in the Irish tune index on my website are variants: Stanford-Petrie # 167 (Kilrush Air), and # 1321 (An Cailin Dubh), Joyce, 'Old Irish Folk Music and Songs' (Nancy the Pride of the West). There are two traditional tunes and a seven verse traditional song, in "Er e/ring ni/ neo/ssung ce/ hi/" (And for the world I will not say who she is), to other variants of the tune in JFSS #23, p. 133, (1920).
