Researching more about the current old-time TOTW, 9/19/14, I looked for the Irish march tune linked to Bonaparte's Retreat through the research of Samuel Bayard. In a Fiddle Hangout link I found the notation by Patrick Weston Joyce in his 1909 book Old Irish Folk Music and Songs. The first part I'm playing comes from Joyce. The second part is my own interpretation of how Bonaparte's Retreat may have evolved from such a march. The Eagle's Whistle was said to be the marching song of the O'Donovan clan of Ireland.
