Bjarte Eike (violin) and Barokksolistene from Norway playing Neil Gow's Lament for the death of his second wife.
The story behind this piece: widower Niel Gow married his second wife, Margaret Urquhart in 1768, and they went on to share a happy marriage until she died in 1805. He was so heartbroken that he couldn't touch his fiddle for a whole year. He played this tune when he eventually picked up his instrument. Niel died at Inver on 1 March 1807, aged 80. This means we can date this work anywhere between 1805 and 1807.
