Only the Necessary Notes

Today's link is mostly for the first tune in the set, a slow air called Donald Ross of Vancouver. This is a tune that's always hit me as getting a magnificent effect with remarkably few notes; repeating in just enough of the right places so that it haunts you rather comfortably. It just sounds like a memory. The band here, Taliska, is new to me, but the smallpipes and French horn combo was quite a good idea.
