    Hi Gary, This sounds like it would be fun to play. A nice arrangement you have
    done with some good material. I read up on the history of this tune, it's interwoven into a lot of Irish and English political and religious history, and even was the signature sound of the BBC during World War II.
    Thanks for presenting it here! John

    Thanks for listening, John.
    This song-for some reason-reminds me of a Western Movie just before the "big brawl: begins....
    GOOD info.

    Hi, Gary - What a fun project. I don't recognize it - where have I been?--what with the tune's long history. When the Piccolos first came in, I thought I'd left the tea kettle on!--hehehe. - Abrupt ending - ??

    I enjoyed - Thanks.

    Thanks for listening, Randy.
    I had to go back & listen for the piccolo.
    It reminds me of statements I've heard about that some picky performers
    who stated specifically where that piccolo should be stuck...
    Piccolo just does those things. Best reason for using them sparingly.

    I've always felt that piccolos in tune sound flat-probably because everyone else is sharp.
