  2. While the Werdyger name graces many an album cover, it is family patriarch Chazan Reb Dovid Werdyger who has the most recordings to his credit.swtor credits

  3. I totally agree, what is that tune? Just saw the movie and that very fast, irish (perhaps) fiddle and tenor banjo tune during Watson's stagg party when Holmes is fighting the assassin is not mentioned on the sound track or in the credits at the end of the movie. It sounds a lot like my favorite band from the 60s, the Dubliners of ireland. The same guys that do Rocky Road to Dublin in the first holmes movie during his fist fight. It sounds like John Sheehan on fiddle and Barney McKenna on banjo. Anyone know??????

    1. I thought it sounded like the Dubliners too. A bit faster than any of the songs I know, though...

  4. I've no idea who made that recording, but the tune, I'm pretty sure, is the congress reel (an irish session tune). anyone care to corroborate?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Wow, I think you're right man. If not the Congress Reel, Cooley's Reel but, definitely a session reel at a speed I just can't play on fiddle yet. Maybe some day! Thanks.

  7. Hey
    I guess it's written for the scene, it starts similar to the Congress reel, but it's not the tune. Any ideas who the musicians are?
    Thanks

  12. Found it. It is called Cooley's Reel (or Joe Cooley's Reel, named after Joe Cooley although he had originally named it the tulla reel). The Irish play it a lot and it is a very imp part of their culture now).

    Listen to Elnor's Magic Valley by Rhapsody from the album Rain of a Thousand Flames. It sounds the same.

  13. The tune in the Assassin scene is definitely the Congress Reel - it can be viewed here :

    However - I can't still figure out where the OST movie version of the tune is.

    ReplyDelete
  14. It's very similar to "The Reel" by Secret Garden (basically the same as Congress Reel). Here are some good versions:

    or the live version (wich I personally like):

  16. We're back to the Congress reel and most of us agree there but, I still say it REALLY sounds like John Sheehan and Barney McKeena of the Dubliners circa 1966. They are famous for their version of cooley's reel. This is a similar tune. Is there a CD I don't know about that this may have been pulled from or can some one tell us who the artist is? We're all dying to go buy the CD whenever one of us can figure it out.

  20. This sounds very much like that song as well

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U28W_TyJUhQ

    it's from The Eagle

    ReplyDelete
  21. it's called congress reel

    ReplyDelete
  22. The tenor banjo guy sounds very much like Gerry O'Connor. and yes it could be cooley at speed or congress. what the players have probably done is mix a couple of parts from different tunes together and then used there own arrangement

    ReplyDelete
  23. I am a fiddler and play both those tunes, Congress and Cooley's reel and know them note for note. Even allowing for variation, I didn't hear either of them in that tune. Irish tunes can all sound alike. It was definitely an Irish reel. I liked the tune it was played perfectly. Any musicians know the tune?

    ReplyDelete
  24. BTW: The tune mentioned above and the link to the Eagle is more like "The Musical Priest" than the Congress reel or Cooley's

    1. it's called Return of the Eagle by Atli Orvarsson.

  25. I agree with Ashley above. Probably an original compilation.

  28. please, I dont want anything similar to, I want just THE ONE from the Sherlock movie! xD _(

  29. boomp3.com/mp3/7se0zppd210 - Irish theme from "Sherlock 2" - fight at the pub.

    ReplyDelete
  30. All the suggestions seem similar but not the exact same tune as the one from the movie!! Ugh, I guess we can't find it anywhere then? Odd how the producers gave no credit to that song whatsoever...

    ReplyDelete
  31. i guess is congress reel...

    check: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODjFUejh_qo

    ReplyDelete
  32. I couldn't agree more with the latest post. How can the producers miss this one? Ever good fiddler I know all agree that it's great and we'd love to get the CD it's on if there is one. Just wish we know who the artists playing it are.

  33. go ask on thesession.org

  34. I have a feeling that the song in question is the first one on this album http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0033AGJS6/ref=nosim/?tag=deccacouk8646-21
    which comes out on the 15th of March apparently. Their an Irish folk band that play in Guy Ritchie's pub. Bit of a long shot but it seems a good possibility

    ReplyDelete
  35. The song in this clip is called "Congress reel", but who's playing i have no idea about. Lots of versons out there, but havent found the band yet..

    ReplyDelete
  36. Found this the other day. Sadly, this is the sound clip from the scene, not just the song we are all still searching for:

    ReplyDelete
  37. But what song is that from the train when he "died" after that fight from the woods??

    ReplyDelete
  38. it reminds me of "the kiss" composed by Trevor Jones on "The Last of the Mohican's" soundtrack...it may not be the same, I've only heard it once

  39. found this. Ritchie's motivation here is easy to understand. The Punchbowl Band aren't just signed to Punchbowl Records. They are also the house act at the Punchbowl, a pub Ritchie owns in London. And they appear on the soundtrack to his new movie, Sherlock Holmes, which happens to include a fight.

  40. Long past the date of your question, but I have the song as "Congress Reel" by Pouring, played on the album "Victims of Irish Music"

    1. That should have said "Poitin "...sorry

  41. If you look on youtube, this is the one labelled as the music in the film but it seems to have a harp and penny whistle playing as well, but there doesn't seem to be any mention of the banjo...

  42. Anyone know the violin song while he's "dead" on the train after the woods chase please?

    ReplyDelete
  43. One thing i know, its not "congress reel" or "cooleys reel" i have listened to both songs repeatedly and it is neither.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Agreed with previous publisher... Its not "musical priest" and nor is it "Congress real."
    It sounds similar, yes, but thats al it is. Similar, not same.

    Im still searching.. My idea is that Hans Zimmer made this combining a few irish traditional songs.

  46. I'm still looking for the violin song played when Sherlock 'died' in the train after escaping.

  47. Studying the credits I found that one of the worlds best violin players contributed to the soundtrack. I googled a little bit, and that's what I found:

    2. BTW: The banjo player is most probably Davey Johnstone.

  48. You can download the tune in mp3 format from here:

    Just scroll down a little and there it is.

  49. Ahh my people, to get this song you have to go all Lex luthor on it. What i mean is this:
    step 1 = download assassin scene from YouTube.
    step 2 = download video to mp3 converter.
    step 3 = you have the mp3 of that beautiful tune. No Problem.
