Tune of the Day: Farewell to the Troubles of the World

Traditional Irish jig

This jig first appeared in P.W. Joyce's collection Ancient Irish Music, published in Dublin in 1873. Francis O'Neill printed a nearly identical version in his Music of Ireland (Chicago, 1903) as “Farewell to My Troubles”. Both titles are recurrent lines of several songs set to the melody.
