Little is known of this piece except for the fact it was composed for Captain O’Kane or O’Cahan of Antrim, a sportsman, well known in his time as “Slasher” O’Kane. The delicate phrasing and expressiveness of this lovely air beg the lie to O’Kane’s notorious nickname. Album, Come under My Protection. © 1998-2010 The Angel Band, all rights reserved.

Solemn and lovely. No, this doesn't fit his nickname, but then again, hunting is often a gruesome sport.
