Tune of the Day: Niel Gow's Lament for the Death of His Second Wife
Traditional Scottish slow air
This lovely air is one of the most celebrated compositions of the famous Scots fiddler and composer Niel Gow (1727-1807). His second wife was Margaret Urquhart of Perth, to whom he was happily married for three decades.
Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
