Off of Aidan O’Rourke’s excellent Sirius. Straightforward 8-bar A section with a slightly more convoluted B section. Here’s the gist of it: B is 24 bars long, with a beautiful 6-bar pattern played four times total –noted here as a repeated 12-bar for clarity. The chords cycle between Bmin and Gadd9 for four bars each, so you get a nifty 6:4, 3:2 polymetric effect.
I play it on a low D whistle and it’s a blast. The range allows for it to be played on an A whistle with G fingers but I haven’t gotten around to transposing it.
