It has long % been appropriated as the marching tune of the yearly % celebration of the shutting and opening of the gates % of Derry." % It may be of interest to add that the siege of Derry occurred % in 1689. % We may be pardoned for remarking that Dr. Joyce's % arrangement is in the Scale of C altho both settings were % derived from the same scarce publication. % Output from ABC2Win Version 2.1 k pre2 on 9/20/2000
