Tune of the Day: The Humors of Trim

Traditional Irish jig

The first appearance of this jig is, without a title, in George Petrie's Collection of the Ancient Music of Ireland, published between 1855 and 1882. The title “The Humors of Trim” is first found in Francis O'Neill's Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. Nowadays the tune is often referred to as “The Rolling Waves”, a name that is however shared by multiple traditional melodies.
