Miss Crofton (Carolan)
This tune was discovered by Janet in Donal O’Sullivan’s treatise on ‘Carolan’ the famous blind harper-composer who lived 1670-1738 - who surmises that Miss Crofton was probably one of the sisters of Carolan’s great friend James Crofton of Longford House. The air is definitely not a typical piece by Carolan as it is leans to the older Gaelic style so the provenance is not certain. No text is known to the piece.
