Tune of the Day: The Dunmore Lasses

Traditional Irish tune

This traditional Irish tune is also known as “Morrison's Reel”. A reel is a typical Irish dance tune in duple meter that is usually very fast and lively; nonetheless, this particular tune is most often played slowly, sometimes almost as if it were an air. We have added some ornamentation on the sheet music, but of course you can omit if you want.

There's a wonderful recording of this tune by Irish flutist Matt Molloy in the Chieftains' 1995 album The Long Black Veil.
