Fingal's Cave

This set is part of the following collections:

There are a number of tunes celebrating the cave at the South of the Island of Staffa, near Iona, including Mendelsson's famous overture. The first tune here is a slow air by the Aberdeenshire fiddler Paul Anderson, originally in E minor. I transposed it to go with the second tune, which is much older.
