HILLS OF GLENORCHIE [2], THE. AKA and see "House of Clonelphin (The)." Irish, Single Jig. A Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The two parts of the melody were printed by P.W. Joyce (1909) as "House of Clonelphin (The)." The first strain is shared with "Paddy McFadden's Jig (3)," in the mid-19th century James Goodman manuscript. Samuel Bayard collected a song air and dance tune version in the 1930's from an informant who lived in Massachusetts, but who had been born in County Cork. She called it "You are my love in the hay all night." The jig is a triple-time version of a Scottish and Irish march whose variants include "Johnny's Trip to France," Frank Roche's "Bag Pipe Tune" and one of the vehicles for the dance "Waves of Torey (The)." See also the untitled "March (34)" in Book 3 of the large c. 1883 music manuscript collection of County Leitrim fiddler and piper biography:Stephen Grier (c. 1824-1894).
