The Pint Of Port

A tune from the young composer/arranger Cían Farrelly, a flute and banjo player hailing from County Westmeath. It came to him one night when he was dosed with the "Man Flu", a vicious and highly contagious short-term infliction that cripples the male’s body and decreases the will to live. He himself knows of a cure for this horrible ailment, that is, a pint of hot port! Upon drinking this sweet medicine, he instantly regained some sort of composure, enough to compose a tune from the music that was ringing throughout his veins. When the last barline was scripted, he had come full circle through the illness and was back to full health, on the pigs back in full flight. The tune is in F# Dorian, I just couldn’t find that option here!
