Q. on Minister of Birse (Name tune for Flower of Glasgow, Bk. 46)

Message 60261 · Steve Wyrick · 25 Jan 2011 06:17:06 · Top

In Book 46 the source of The Minister of Birse, the lead tune for The Flower
of Glasgow, is listed as "Traditional." It doesn't turn up online in any of
my usual sources or in a tune index I have from the Highland Village Museum
in Cape Breton that covers a huge number of Scottish, Irish and Cape Breton
tunebooks from the mid-1700s to late-1900s. Out of curiosity does anybody
know the source of this tune? It feels newish; late-19th century if not
newer. -Steve
