Should anyone happen to be playing #758, what we had thought was "The Rakes of Westmouth Trill" is actually "The Rakes of Westmeath Irish" with the old "f" for "s" and Westmeath being a county in Ireland.

One of the researchers has been doing extensive work on the ms with regards to its dating and will be sharing this info with us and in a presentation in a month or so. I look forward to sharing this with you. (He mentioned the "Irish".)

Thanks Sandra. We'd already spotted that and entered the "alternative" spelling!
Btw, there's quite a few tunes in common with our current project, the "Roose" MS.
