Lament for Nurse Cavell
#1
This came up in a Mudcat thread.  I wouldn't say it's a lost masterpiece but it may fit in to somebody's WW1 commemoration plans.


Code:
X:1
T:Lament for Nurse Cavell
C:Jas. Wilson, Pipe Major, Q.V.S. Dunblane
M:C
L:1/8
Q:1/4=60
K:Hp

There is also a song version which is bloody awful.

Thanks for posting that, Jack. Maybe not in the top 100 of tunes, but means something to me, having trained at The London Hospital in Whitechapel, where Edith Cavell had spent part of her career: she has a street, a Nurses' Home and a hospital ward named after her, as are other hospitals and places in the UK. And there is also a mountain named after her in the Canadian Rockies, part of which we have climbed.
