Tune of the Day: The Templehouse Reel
Traditional Irish reel
This reel appears under the title “Temple House” in the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of County Cork cleric and uilleann piper Canon James Goodman. The melody appears to be derived from a Scottish strathspey, “Struan Robertson's Rant”, which was published by Robert Bremner in 1757.
