I do still mean to check these out, and the Irish thread. I've been downloading torrents at home, which wreaks havoc on my connection and makes watching/listening to anything on my computer impossible.

I know this isn't what you meant finance, but this version is an old favorite of mine and still gives me goose bumps everytime they all come in at about 1:00. Hope you like it.

Sorry about the video, that is how we used to listen to music


YouTube - Royal Scots Dragoon Guards - Amazing Grace - 45 rpm

That's really beautiful. The tune isn't very familiar to me, but the "will you go, lassie go" line is ringing a really strong bell with me, so I must have heard some version of it along the line.

I'm a sucker for folk songs being performed and the audience sings along. (yes, I cry when Captain von Trapp and the audience sing "Edelweiss" in The Sound of Music )
