Slow Time

Today is Holocaust Day for us, so much as I'd love to ship off a jig, I am, instead, going to send up a melodic offering in the form of this slow air. For those who don't know, on this day the air-raid sirens go off in Israel, (as they just did a few minutes ago) from the 2,500 metre peak of Mt. Hei...

The last two notes of the 7th bar are even to give a more melodic sense to the ending. Quite a few pipe music settings defaults to rhythm over melody. Many Scottish songs which are also played as pipe tunes get over-pointed, and no longer fit the words. I am always mindful of a 2-4 competition years...

THE CADENCE OF THE LOOM (March)

A newish tune. I welcome critique if anyone finds a spot which just doesn't go. Otherwise, enjoy.
