I've always loved this tune, a classic for the UPs for sure and am finally venturing to give it a go. But what version to tackle? I have Pat Mitchell's transcription of Ennis' in the wonderful NPU book. But I think a 5 part version is more popular?

Is it a common session tune, and if so, is there a favoured version?

And hey, maybe a topic for another thread but any tips on the Ennis trill which he makes heavy use of?

Ennis also has a cool ornament from Cnat to C sharp, well fitted to such a modal tune.

Cheers,
Mike

I always thought this was a great one to play along with once you got it. One of my favorite albums has a track of her playing this tune with some nice backing.

Is “I Buried My Wife...” one of the shorter versions of it?

As "Cunla" was the first track on the first Planxty record I ever bought, and thus my introduction to the uilleann pipes, I have always loved the tune. Besides Liam O'Flynn's version, I really like the five-part setting in O'Neill's 1001 Gems, #260 in my copy, but in my experience lots of other players don't know that setting so it's more of a performance piece or (more usually) one to play only for my own pleasure.

I always liked this version from the Fox, Islington, London 1966, spoons, banjo and all. Real, living music from a long vanished era.

For some reason I can't get that link to play. It may be my broadband ... although other things are working ... hmmm ...

OK, I've Googled it. I think the problem must be with their server. Everything else is working fine on my machine. I'll try tomorrow ...

How interesting. A 'repair' notice has just been posted by the site. OK. I'll wait. :)
