This a fiddle piece by the famous Scottish fiddler/composer James Scott Skinner – a lament for a fallen hero. The piece is very sombre, the sheet music instructions for interpretation say “..with utmost sadness..”. I knew the fiddle version, but recently, during the CD-Production of the Highland Saga show, i got the chance to work with top-class pipers, led by pipe-major Ronald A. Bromhead, and got to know the bagpipes version. My solo guitar rendering attempts to bring together elements of both ….. This is dedicated to my father and to all my wonderful colleagues at the Highland Saga show. Enjoy!
