Tune of the Day: Paddy's Resource

Traditional Irish march

In Songs and Music of the Redcoats (1970), Lewis Winstock says that this tune was written by Irish band sergeant James O'Connor as a march for his British army regiment, the 77th, in the Crimean War (1855), at the suggestion, it is said, of his commanding officer. Perhaps it was that O'Connor adapted it, for the tune had already appeared some seventy years earlier in A Collection of Scots Measures by Alexander ‛King’ McGlashan, published around 1780.
