Inspired by a discussion in Tune of the Week, Feb 5, 2010. I always knew this as Down in the Salley Garden. "Salley" is an Irish word for willow (from latin). In that version, lyrics by William Butler Yeats, the tune is a lament. I like the uptempo versions, especially when Willow Garden's murder-ballad lyrics are sung; the mood of those lyrics at a spirited tempo create an odd tension. I'm not singing here.
