Absolutely: the slower the better, and not a waltz either although usually written in 3/4 rather than 6/8.

And here it is, played even slower than the fiddle orchestras play it: do go to YouTube itself and read the notes under the clip to appreciate what this tune means to Orcadians such as Jennifer and Hazel Wrigley. So please, no jigs or waltzes! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ipPVfNHs3g
