IRISH TROT [3]. English, From Pills to Purge Melancholy, V, 108. Samuel Bayard notes that this tune is quite different than Playford's Dancing Master "Irish Trot" but was nonetheless quite popular in its day. In his article "A Miscellany of Tune Notes" (Studies in Folklore, p. 170), he records finding a Welsh version printed in Nicholas Bennett's Alawon fy Ngwlad (1896), volume I, the third air on p. 56. Another Welsh set of this tune reprinted from an 18th century manuscript by W.S. Gwynn Williams, Welsh National Music and Dance (p. 133), under the title "Galloping Nag Round O (The)." Parry's Welsh Harper (II, p. 6) gives a version from Miss Williams' earlier collection (Ancient National Airs of Gwent and Morganwg, 1844) appearing as "Ffoles Llantrisant" (The merry girl of Llantrisant).
