Subject: Lyr Req: The Parting Glass and another song

Hi there
My sister is trying to trace version of The Parting Glass that she heard where it was sung alongside a second,interlinked song.

She has no idea what the second song was, but the two intertwined beautifully and she would love to hear it again. Does anyone have any idea what it might have been?

OK, it's a long shot, but this is the place where we might just get an answer!

Cheers

K/van

Presumably, you don’t mean Dylan’s Restless Farewell, which is a sort of re-write of the Brendan Behan song.

Sounds intriguing, Kampervan. Hope you don't mind the slight change I made in the thread title, so people won't come here telling you how to find "The Parting Glass," which I'm sure you know how to do.

Seems to me I've heard "Parting Glass" with a "partner song," but I can't recall what the other song was.

There's a technical name for "partner song." The first word that came to mind was "quodlibet," but I don't think that's the right word.

Hi Joe
Thanks for the amend, I struggled a bit with the thread title and I think that yours is better.

I also thought that there had to be a technical name for what I was looking for but couldn't recall ever having heard it.

Here's hoping!

Probably not it, but Shaun Davey put the parting glass to a new melody for the film Waking Ned Devine. That version is usually performed with the first verse in the traditional melody, and the subsequent ones in Shaun Davey's new setting. It's been done by the Voice Squad, The High Kings, and Celtic Woman.
The High Kings- The Parting Glass
(This is from their highly polished early years: not my favorite)

Hi Kampervan,

Scroll down to a list of recordings of this song

It usually helps to have a little more information about the singer(s) - male, female, a group, a choir, a band etc - musicians, instruments, where and when the song was heard e.g. on a radio program, on TV, on a recording, (i.e. who, what, where, when) and anything your sister can remember about the song.

More information may jog the memories of the people looking for the songs.

Ed Sheeran's version Understated and beautiful, in my opinion.

Helen

Ronnie Drew did this with a female singer who's name escapes me, one singing The Parting Glass and the other singing Restless Farewell.

Kampervan, do you mean the two songs are sung one after the other as a medley, or are they sung both at the same time?

Subject: Lyr Add: SWEET COOTEHILL TOWN
From: mayomick
Date: 02 Mar 18 - 10:51 AM

There's a song with the same air "Sweet Cootehill Town". Maybe it was that? I think Sam Henry's book said the song pre-dated the Parting Glass.

SWEET COOTEHILL TOWN
As recorded by Reg Keating on "Songs of Cavan" (2015)

Oh fare you well, sweet Cootehill town, the place where I was born and bred.
Through shady groves and flowery hills my youthful fancy did serenade.
But now I’m bound for Amerikay, a country I never saw.
These pleasant scenes, I will always mind when I am roving far away.

The pleasant hills near Cootehill town where I have spent my youthful days,
Both day and night, I took delight in dancing and in harmless plays;
But while I rove from town to town fond memories in my mind shall stay.
Of those pleasant happy youthful hours that now are spent and passed away.

Perchance kind fate will reinstate and fortune’s face upon me smile
To safe conduct me home again to my own dear native Irish isle,
When all my comrades and friends likewise will gather round and to me will say:
"We’ll sing and dance as in days gone by; you are welcome home from Amerikay."

Kampervan, did you watch the video posted by ketchdana on 25 Feb 18 - 04:33 PM? The one by Ronnie Drew and Eleanor Shanley? Is that the one you are looking for?

Also, did you find out more information, and if so could you let us know what you found out, please:

"It usually helps to have a little more information about the singer(s) - male, female, a group, a choir, a band etc - musicians, instruments, where and when the song was heard e.g. on a radio program, on TV, on a recording, (i.e. who, what, where, when) and anything your sister can remember about the song."

Well gillymor, I guess that was a pointless joke and you didn't get it, but the joke is on me anyway because unfortunately hubby has a William Shatner CD and he plays in the car so I have to listen to it - not very often, but often enough.

Pointless

I don't think the Police have developed a test for driving under the influence of Shatner yet, so it's not illegal yet.

Pointless sounds a bit like our Family Feud but perhaps a little too complex for the average Trump voter.

It's not the " Kind Friends and Companions" one which Sheila Stewart used to sing? According to the thread on "the other Parting Glass", the Chieftains also recorded it.

Or "When First we Met" by Alan Bell?(variously wrongly described as a Scottish or Irish song - it's English!).

Or "Auld Lang Syne" to the older tune?

Or Iain Sinclair's "Tak a dram afore ye go"?

Also try looking through the other Parting Glass threads that are on here.

From the sublime to the ridiculous. I made up a story about finding the words to a song in an old cinema they were demolishing near Swinton Folk Club and then proceeded to sing the first verse of 'Chantilly Lace' to the tune of the Parting Glass. First sung verse that is - From 'Chantilly Lace' to 'ooh baby that's what I like'. It works!

Just looked at Jim's link (ha-ha!): same song as Sheila Stewart's but different tune: she sang it to the same tune as "Puir Roving Lassie".

And for a parting joke, we finish some of our sets with "Will Ye No Come back Again?" in hopes of being invited back.
