Re: The Languor Of Love

Rick Lee created his song, ‘True Thomas" from this lovely air. We played it for several concerts—-it’s a haunting Child ballad, from Scotland, of Tam Lin and the Queen of the Fairies. It can be heard here.

Actually, I play this bass accompaniment on viola while imagining that I am really playing the violin.
It of course comes out in the key of D. This bass part is from Captain Simon Fraser’s Airs and Melodies Peculiar to the Highlands of Scotland and the Isles.
