Darklight

This is one of Davy Spillane’s most haunting but complex "airs" for low whistle and pipes and, so far, I’ve only transcribed the first part on the low whistle. Where I leave off, the pipes take over and they prove harder to transcribe. Following them, there are very sections of pipe and whistle with them often overlapping and the playing gets more and more complex. Stunning playing!
