A great tune by Ali Hutton, here transposed from Rura’s latest CD ‘Despite the Dark’. This was requested by Kenneth Macfarlane earlier.

Re: Ophelia

Nigel (anyone) do you know another recording of this? I can’t seem to find that it is on that CD. I mean, it doesn’t come up in any of the links (Google crosses out the title Ophelia!) Was hoping to catch a sample at least, for the feel of it at reel tempo. TY!

Re: Ophelia

It’s the first tune on the 5th track, which is called "The Glorious 45". On the session.org it is spelled "Opheillia". I’m not sure where else you could hear it, Diane. Although I think it’s on Spotify.

Re: Ophelia

Thanks Nigel… looking for that 5th track title is what got me to it. The tune has an unusual rhythm, so I wanted to hear what they were doing with it. Much appreciated. 🙂
