LARK ON THE STRAND [2]. AKA and see "Blooming Meadows (3)," "Primrose Glen (The)," "Wicky Sears." Irish, Double Jig. G Major/E Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A different setting than Breathnach's "Lark on the Strand (1)." However, Breathnach does print this tune in his CRE I (No. 5) as "Primrose Glen (The)" which he maintains is the correct title.
