This is a traditional Celtic lament to the deaths of James IV, many of his nobles, and over 10,000 men – the titular "Flowers of the Forest" - at the Battle of Flodden Field in northern England in 1513, a significant event in the history of Scotland. The original composer is unknown.

These days the tune is widely incorporated into funerals and memorial services, hence my being requested to transcribe, arrange and perform this version for the funeral of my beloved grandmother in September 2012.
