The music I use for Aniseed-water Robin (aka The Irish Lady) is, indeed,
that from 'The Art of the Bawdy Ballad' by the Baltimore Consort.

Since Irish Lady is a 3-figure progressive with an extra intro figure,
you aren't going to find any pre-recorded music that will work (at least,
in every situation - and being that this is a rather long dance, probably
in any situation), but this piece of music works well as the basis of a
patched-together series of tunes based on the number of couples, or, as I
do, the building blocks required to build various couple-number-specific
iTunes playlists.
