A slow air of my own composition

I wrote this air (here written as a waltz, but one could just as easily write it in 4/4, as the rhythm is free and flowing) to be used in the soundtrack for an animation I am making. Since it’s an air, play it however you like - occasionally I amuse myself by playing it as a horpipe.

Just a note…

…this tune is also different from the tunes listed on the recordings.
