Traditional. There is some controversy concerning this composition. We have sometimes heard it attributed to Turlough O’Carolan and it is hauntingly reminiscent of his melodic style. However in 1798, Edward Bunting, the foremost chronicler of Irish traditional music of his time, opined that this tune was of ancient origin and unknown authorship. Many thanks to Jeff Warner who introduced us to this beautiful piece of music from Irish antiquity. Album, Come under My Protection. © 1998-2010 The Angel Band, all rights reserved.

What a nice thing for you to say! Thank you! As far as the banjo part in this tune is concerned, I use standard G-Tuning to play in F without a capo. The notes just seem to pop in right when ya need 'em. ;)
