Subject: RE: Auld Lang Syne
The Barra MacNeils, of Cape Breton, just came out with a new Christmas recording which includes a 5:04 version of Auld Lang Syne, which their research indicates may have been the melody current when Burns first wrote it down.

Personally, I think it's one of the most beautiful versions of the song I have heard in a long time. Doesn't get much better than that.
