Here's a go on Anglo, with some backing tracks. I tried it on both my concertinas, and found that I much preferred it on the old (1890?) Lachenal. Maybe the noisier action evokes a hurdy-gurdy.
As for its being "the ultimate international melody," I can't even begin to wrap my head around what that might mean; unless I've been misusing both those adjectives all my life, the claim is as opaque as a Zen koan to me. But I did play it in my own way, since despite my best efforts I couldn't figure out how to do otherwise.
The tune doesn't need all that hyperbole, anyway: it stands perfectly well on its own.
Two interesting and contrasting interpretations of the tune.
Hmmm. I think I was trying to be too cute here.
Interesting Anglo fingering to smooth out the first phrase of the A part.
Played on a 30 button Jeffries G/D Anglo.
