The White House

This was composed by North East flute player Norman Holmes. Also known as Holmes’ Mazurka.

This is the version as recorded by Claire Mann - The Waves of Rush by Tabache.

Re: The White House

The tune was brought about as neighbours farm, coloured bright white and in full view of my window, hence The White House title.
