Hewlitt has neither first name nor title. That’s all that’s known about him or her. But the beneficiary of this composition must have been of some significance to inspire such a fine tune.

Nicely done; I love the idea of starting it with the hammered dulcimer solo.

Thanks. What we tried to do in the band was make sure we all knew the melody line, then figure out how to present, expand, and end the tune with seven instruments using counterpoint, accompaniment, and harmonies. In Ireland, Carolan's music had been traditionally played in unison and our approach was mostly new to the Carolan audience. Check out Bob Paul's introduction to Lady Wrixon and the lovely Baroque flavored countermelody Cathryn Norris composed for Morris O'Connor used by itself as an intro and during the tune.
