A frilly version of the Munster Cloak, isn't it?


From The Fiddler's companion:
Quote:
MUNSTER CLOAK, THE (An Fhalaingín Mhuimhneach). Irish, Air (3/4 time). D Major (most versions): G Major (Cranford/Holland). Standard tuning. AABB. Sometimes called “The Spanish Cloak.” There is a (rather unlikely) story (attributed to either Sean O’Riada or Paddy Moloney) that the tune was introduced into Ireland by a shipwrecked survivor of the Spanish Armada in the 16th century. Stuart Eydmann notes that a Spanish composer, Enrique Granados (1867-1916) composed a set of ten Danzas españolas for piano (later orchestrated for guitar and orchestra), of which No. 6 is similar to “The Munster/Spanish Cloak.” The dance is characterized as a "rondalla Aragonesa which describes the scene of guitars being strummed in the streets and is in the rhythm of the jota, a dance from Aragon and Valencia.” The composer met his end in World War I when his ship was torpedoed in the English Channel, on his return voyage from an American tour. The melody has been characterized as an air, a mazurka, and even a march—although it fits none of the categories clearly

Interesting, it seems that the origin of this song is still surrounded by mystery.
Thanks very much for the help Mr.Gumby.
By the way, what other websites can you recommend me that can provide details about the origin of traditional tunes?
