    Happy New Year, my friend!

    Very nice work on this. Very nice, indeed,
    Richard!

    The percussion work is aces; and that
    mute writing was exceptional... loved it.

    My best,

    What a nice way to ring in the New Year. Excellent work Richard!

    About Auld Lang Syne

    There are hundreds of songs associated with Christmas. But only one is associated with New Year's: Auld Lang Syne.
    "Auld Lang Syne" is a poem by Robert Burns, although a similar poem by Robert Ayton (1570-1638), not to mention even older folk songs, use the same phrase, and may well have inspired Burns.


    In any case, it is one of the best known songs in English-speaking countries - although, like many other frequently sung songs, the melody is better remembered than the words, which are often sung incorrectly, and seldom in full...

    "Auld Lang Syne" is usually sung each year on New Year's Eve (Hogmanay in Scotland) in the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and English speaking Canada at midnight and signifies the start of a new year...
    The tune to which Auld Lang Syne is universally sung is a pentatonic Scots (or possibly Northumbrian) folk melody - probably originally a sprightly dance in a much quicker tempo.
    And, for your musical enjoyment, here's a site that has 25 versions of Auld Lang Syne

    Thanks for the comments, Gary. I'm really going to spend some time analyzing those 25 versions of this great piece of music. These are almost as good as the Garritan BagPipes Worst Demo ever. WoW!
