Darling’s

A very beautiful waltz written by Johnny Cunningham, this waltz is listenable in the CD soundtrack of the theather show “Peter and Wendy” where all the music was written and arranged by Johnny.

It is indeed a lovely tune, Mr G. Thanks.

Not quite……

To be pedantic, not ALL of the music was written by Johnny, there are a few traditional Scottish tunes in some tracks.
“The Flight” consists of 3 reels which Johnny recorded before, “Blair Drummond” / “The Cairdin’ O’t / Lexy McAskill”.
“The Landing” starts with the strathspey “Cutting Bracken / Tha Mi Sgidh”.
“The Duel” has 2 reels - I don’t know the first, but the 2nd is “The Ale Is Dear”.
I’ve always liked this waltz - not a tune type I’m overly fond of , usually - but I agree, it’s a good one.
