Those C sharps…

in the Conneely version are interesting. Anyone who stumbles across this tune would do well to try that rendition as well as the composer’s.

Thanks for posting both, Dr. Dow!

I agree. It was the C#s in the version on Selkie which originally caught my attention but then I realised I had the original setting in my CD collection so I thought it best to post that.
