“Orkney” ~ composed and played by Gordon Gunn in 3/4 time
This is a lovely air, or if you like you could think of it as a ‘slow’ waltz. There is a different take in polka time elsewhere on this site, which doesn’t quite make ring right to me and, personally, I wouldn’t consider the same tune, whatever similarities persist. I hope, out of courtesy for the tune and its composer that this will survive… I also hope folks like it as much as I do. For a lovely rendition of it I would recommend Gordon Gunn’s own take on his tune as found on his recording "Shoreside"…
Gordon Gunn’s website, and the band’s ~
Here also you’ll find a short snippet of an MP3 of "Orkney" ~
Beautiful tune. I just ordered his CD after hearing that sample!
That brought a broad smile, seeing the increased value these submissions can have in furthering the music, for the artists involved and for your listening pleasure… :-)
really lovely tune - I’m looking forward to working an arrangement…
