    This week's winner is an O'Carolan tune, Beauty in Tears.

    Here is a link to standard notation and abc.

    This is one of those tunes attributed to Carolan that appears only in O'Neill and not in Sullivan. I recorded a very no-frills version back in 2011:

    Nice and clean picking, dusty. And good examples from our archives from David and Martin.

    Further to my old recording I have posted above, I have today also made this new recording as a trio of two mandolins and mandocello, using harmonies I found online and adapted for my needs.

    1921 Gibson Ajr mandolin (x2)
    Suzuki MC-815 mandocello

    Great versions from dustyamps and Martin.
    The fourth video posted by Barbara above is also from our archives - Tosh Marshall playingin 2010 the first mandolin part from Deborah Greenblatt's arrangement . At that time the second mandolin part was too difficult for us as it has several tricky chromatic runs.
    However we recently reintroduced it to our repertoire and after seven years practise can just about manage it.
