A tune from Contradiction by Fromseier Rose

Contradiction by Fromseier Rose

Thank you for this tune, it’s so beautiful and I can actually play it. Would you happen to have "The Bittern" as well (the tune right before Piper’s Beast) they both sound so haunting as a set.

The tune is written by Michael G. Rose and he has asked me to say that the tune actually is in Eminor - just to let you know 🙂

Great tune anyways!

I just heard this beautiful tune on liveireland. Thanks for posting this.

I know that it’s in Eminor, but I had to transpose it to make it flute-friendly. I’ll maybe post the original setting later.

@ClucknPluck, I’ve submitted "The Bittern", enjoy.

And here’s the original E-minor setting
