Boney’s Retreat

Just another grand wee Fifing March which does not appear to be related to any other Bonaparte tune here ….. but I could be wrong. 😛

The Humours of Tullycrine:

…but that’s starting to clutch at straws. You can find a connection between The Trumpet Hornpipe and J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion if you try hard enough.
