CORA DONN, AN. Irish, Hornpipe. G Major ('A' part) & D Major ('B' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The table of contents in Mulvihill's publication gives the title as "Amaora Doon." Paul de Grae notes this is probably a miss-spelling of "An Comhra Donn," which, while similarly pronounced, is the name of another tune. He points out the tune is called "Spellan's Fiddle" in O'Neill's Music of Ireland (1903, No. 1616).

Source for notated version: "the late" Gus Collins (Bronx, NY) [Mulvihill].

Printed source: Mulvihill (1st Collection), 1986; No. 38, p. 100.
