Nice arrangement! Jay Ungar must have tuned into the Infinite when he composed a Scottish lament that sounds so authentic.
I had arranged Ashokan Farewell for my Abaca String Band and because of a mutual friend got to have a conversation about it with Jay Ungar shortly after it was published for violin and piano. He told me he wrote it in one take on the day everyone left his summer music camp in Ashokan,NY. He was feeling melancholy and the music just went right through him into his violin. Wonderful piece of music.
