Nice arrangement and beautiful playing. :applauso: It is one of my favorites of his. I've wanted to play it for a long time.
You've reawakened that desire once more, but it will be long long time before I can play it at the tempo you're using! :-D
:merci: for sharing it with us.

:bravo: Very nice. The Gutmeier and your playing are both beautiful. Mr. 'sound' man, Riff, gave it the clean live performance quality. Thanks for the Gutmeier sound treat.

Thanks all...I feel like its a good tempo for this piece, I wouldn't play it much faster. Its not all that difficult, but lotsa counterpoint.

Thanks everyone...I am playing four O'Carolan pieces this season: Clergy's Lament (minor and slow) Fanny Power (waltz like) Carolan's Concerto (fast reel) and this one. Its been going over pretty well with the programs I've done so far even though its quite a departure for me.
