This tune Macmaster plays in the intro of her dvd/video lesson, very nice. A splendid tune to play last in a reel set or after a hornpipe or strathspey

Yes, really nice tune. There’s a version of the album "Variations" by Beolach as well - not sure if you can add this to the Details page?

Version "on" the album… Oops!

Version for flutes….

E naturals

great tune, but are the E’s in the last 2 bars meant to be naturals?

Natalie MacMaster, at least, plays it in Gdor as Harv67 suggests. According to the Traditional Tune Archive, this tune was composed by Alexander Walker.
