Subject: RE: Tune Req: chieftains 4
I made a post earlier, which has now gone, for whatever reason.

So again:

I have seen written versions of the Battle of Aughrim in both 2/4 and 4/4. It's not particularly unusual to find marches with either time signature.

Equally The Return from Fingal can appear in different formats and keys, compare for example the version printed by Petrie and the one played by Sťamus Ennis.
