Hi Ely----I realize your problem with "Ashoken Farewell" but if you're playing for the masses, it ends a medley well because most people believe it IS a period song. I t is certainly in the style and a haunting melody. I do inform folks that it is not, but so damn many people saw the Ken Burns series, they are actually looking forward to it.

But I do understand your point!
