IRISH MORSHAW. Irish (?), Jig (6/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody was also printed in John Brysson's A curious selection of favourite tunes, with variations, to which is added upwards of 50 favourite Irish airs, for the German flute or violin, with a bass for the harpsichord or violincello... (Edinburgh, 1791). The title is curious and has eluded us so far.
