Tune of the Day: Daniel of the Sun

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest appearance of this tune is in Irish violinist R.M. Levey's second collection of The Dance Music of Ireland, published in London in 1873.

This lightly ornamented three-part setting is taken from Francis O'Neill's The Dance Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1907.
