I MILTOWN A CÚALA MÉ AN CEÓL (In Milltown I heard the music). AKA and see "Will My Love be True?." Irish, Air (9/8 time). B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. George Petrie collected four versions of this air, three in 9/8 time and one in 6/8 time. Fr. John Quinn finds the Hoffmann/Petrie 9/8 time version, with the title translated into English, is based on Stanford/Petrie No. 1073, with the ending slightly altered. Further, Fr. Quinn notes, Francis O'Neill copied the 6/8 version of the tune (No. 268 in Stanford/Petrie), transposed it and renamed it "Will My Love be True?."
