Slow air and reel: A couple of my own compositions. Baltic began life as a reel, but over the years has slowed right down. Inspired by winters in Edinburgh, when the wind that whips off the North Sea is described as "Baltic" — all the way from the Baltic Sea, in other words.
The Running Field at Meenross is named after a meadow by the house of the Patience family in deepest County Clare. Used for grazing horses and letting them run, in summer it is full of rare wild flowers.
