This is my campanella arrangement of an Irish tune called Gary Owen.
Originally a quickstep dance this tune has been used as a marching tune for Bristish, Canadian and American military formations. In 1867 Garyowen was adopted by General Custer's 7th Cavalry Regiment as their official song. Hope you enjoy my arrangement. I made this recording over Easter while in Spain. :)

That was lovely. I love the cascade of notes effect you get with that style!
