*Notes: Sarah Hotchkiss writes of the MP3 above, “This is a Gm setting of a tune that is usually found in G major.  This was recorded by Sian Phillips and John Mowad in this album:   Sian Phillips and Danny Kilbride are the originators of performing this tune in Gm, I believe.  It most often appears in a major key (varying depending on the singer or player) as in the YouTube above.
