Drunk All Night And Dry In The Morning

Transcribed from an old session tape.I think that the tune is Scottish or perhaps from the Border Country.

This was composed by Niel Gow in the 18th(?) Century.

It was recorded by the Scottish band, Ossian, in the 20th Century.

it’s a lovely tune, whatever. thanks for putting it up.

Drunk at Night

I’m planning to play this tune for the prelude at my brother’s wedding. We have decided to do a completely non classical wedding even though both his siblings are classical musicians. It’s a wonderful tune that I heard on the Abbey Newton CD and have already begun teaching to my students.

Ossian

Setting 2 comes from Ossian. Note the lack of repeats in the 2nd & 4th parts and the 2nd ending in the 3rd part.

Drunk All Night And Dry In The Morning, X:3

I’ve always liked this air, composed by Niel Gow, since hearing it played by Scottish band "Ossian" in the 1980s - see video above. They played it in the key of "G", which was never quite right for me on flute because of the way the 3rd part drops too low for the range of the flute, and you have to "jump" the octave, which is what Iain MacDonald does. Even in "A" - which I think was the original key [ "The Gow Collection Of Scottish Dance Music - compiled and edited by Richard Carlin, tune #591 ] - you still have a low "C#" note to contend with.
It only occurred to me a couple of weeks ago, that it works perfectly within the "normal" 2-octave range of the flute if you play it in "D", so I thought it worthwhile posting here.
