Heard this tune on the radio, sounded like it had pipes on it. Don’t know anything about the tune.
"Arrival" is an ABBA tune/piece, written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus in 1976. Mike Oldfield released another version some years later.
The Scottish group The Bully Wee Band recorded a version on their 1978 LP Silvermines, adding "Donnybrook Fair" on to the end. There is a piece of the same name on Ossian’s 1985 album Light On a Distant Shore, but it’s not this one, but a composition by William Jackson.
The tune does seem to reflect Benny Andersson’s traditional roots. It would make a good gånglåt.
