Andrew Berry asked about this tune in a discussion. It’s from Sealbh by Iain MacInnes (2009). Although it’s in G, I believe Iain is playing the air on an A whistle, using D fingering, so I have rendered it thus. Another example of Iain’s beautiful music.
Oops, I think I meant a G whistle!
Composed by Mairi Campbell
Worth noting that the tune was composed by another notable Edinburgh musician, Mairi Campbell, for an Austrain friend.
It’s definitely in G on the recording, so Low G whistle almost certainly (?)
Thanks for that, Niall. I hope Mairi’s friendship wasn’t too strained.
Aarrgghh - that was of course Austrian, not Australian or any other mangled attempt at a nationality…
