In the same spirit as my Three Rags After Bach, I have recomposed an 18th century tune in an entirely different style. In this case, I took Carolan's Farewell to Music by the Irish harper Turlough O'Carolan, and morphed it into a Middle Eastern dance tune by changing the scale and meter, in addition to generally messing with the melody. When played for dancers, it can be played with mandolin (or other melody instrument) and drums. The guitar accompaniment is to be used when it is played as recital music. The inspiration for this piece was my work with the dance ensemble, Celtistan, a group of Middle Eastern dancers whose members are all of either Irish, Scotch, Welsh or English descent (hence the name).
