A lovely slow waltz or air. Take your pick

Happy Easter and here’s another tune to delight. It was composed by Blair Douglas in memory of all those who lost their lives in New York on 9/11 (11th September to non US citizens) 2001.

It’s extremely nice to play on the accordion, fiddle, or whatever but –ideally— slowly.

… and most suited to the Scottish pipes obviously.
It’s a good gesture but a bit too tartan coloured to my taste, I can almost hear the snare drum salute…

Blair Douglas is a box and keyboard player

It doesn’t sound “tartan” to me by any means but, you’re right, the pipes etc feature above

I like the tune and it’s posted here for those who want it. There’s plenty of other shecht on this database but I don’t complain about it.

This is beautiful. So enjoyable on my flute too! Thank you. A great tribute.
