BARON'S COURT DANCE. Irish, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody is contained in vol. 2 (p. 159) of the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of County Cork cleric and uilleann piper James Goodman. Goodman manuscripts researchers Hugh and Lisa Shields find cognate melodies in an untitled jig in Breathach & Small's Ceol Rince na hEirreann 5 (1999, No. 69) and in Browne's Country Dances. The untitled tune in CRE V was from the music manuscript collection mostly of the Pigott family in east Kerry at the beginning of the 20th century, made available to Breathnach by Con O'Flynn, Castleisland.
