Farewell to Stromness
Is this allowed?? Saw someone had requested it. Not a traditional tune, but written by Peter Maxwell Davies. It’s the piano interlude from ‘The Yellow Cake Review’ which was a show he wrote as part of a protest against Uranium mining in the Orkneys. Great tune, sometimes heard on solo guitar. It’s got a middle section which I wouldn’t like to try putting into abc - life’s too short!
ooops - my first attempt at abc and I’ve just noticed - the low A notes (semiquavers) in bars 2,3,4,6,7,8 should be B’s
You can change the ABC, but not the shett music.
or sheet music, as it were. 🙂
Re: Farewell To Stromness
Thank you for posting this beautiful, haunting tune. Composed by Peter Maxwell Davies who has just died. A remarkable man. May he rest in peace.
