Tune of the Day: Happy to Meet and Sorry to Part

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of this tune is in the American collection Howe's 1000 Jigs and Reels, published in Boston around 1867. Francis O'Neill called it “a grand and spirited double jig”, and included it in three of his classic Irish tune collections.
