I ran across this song a year ago. It is not only traditional for New Year's Eve (according to no less than Robert Burns who wrote Auld Lang Syne) but is also traditional as a farewell song to the dearly departed. My Mom and ASM826's Dad both passed this last year, and so this beautiful cover by the Face Vocal Band is a fitting end to 2020.
Mom and Dad loved light classical music, and I picked up that same affinity. Last year I (quite by accident) found this delightful piece by Ernest Tomlinson, Fantasia on Auld Lang Syne for Orchestra. It weaves not just Burns' magnum opus but snippets of 152 other songs as well.
To all our readers, we wish you a happy and prosperous New Year.
