  1. The title is taken ...


  1. The title is taken from the poem Harne, Harne, Harne by Alan Cunningham

  2. Originally I called this dance Rose Among the Heather, then I found that Mr. lain Boyd of New Zealand had composed a dance with this title, so I had to think of a new name for my dance, but, of course, the tune stays the same.
