Hi Alison

I've got this on a CD called The Fureys Finest - which was one of those fairly low priced CD's (rather than the usual full slug of almost $30). It's a truly lovely piece of music and well worth learning to play. A local Irish band in Newcastle has a band member who plays it on one of those really big, mellow whistles that he brought out here with him from Ireland, I think.

I'll probably see you this weekend so I'll bring a cassette of it for you to listen to.
