Tune of the Day: The Book of Rights

Traditional Irish jig

This tune is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. Irish Guitarist Paul de Grae notes that the title “Book of Rights” belongs to a Irish medieval manuscript. A very similar tune appears in the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of County Cork cleric and uilleann piper Canon James Goodman under the title “The Rights of an Irishman”.
