Oops. These may have got lost somewhere. I'll see whether I can add them to
the book.

That's because the tune (by Angus Fitchet, who died in 1988) is still
copyrighted and thus can't be included in a Creative-Commons licensed book.
All the other dances use either »traditional« (i.e., composer dead for longer
than 70 years) tunes or music specifically commissioned for the dances, where
the composers are fine with them being included (this was one of the original
stipulations of the project).
