@Dusty-Turtle @Macaodha @Gordon-Hardy Gentlemen, thank you for the kind comments-- we truly appreciate your listening!  Mark & I each had relatives we were fortunate enough to know who had been born in the late-1800's.  So sad and tragic how Earnest, the brother of one of Mark's grandmothers, didn't live to much past boyhood.

Robin, I just took the time to listen to your mourning song. Young Earnest would be proud! This composition has such a beautiful soothing quality. Thank you.

Yes, you certainly capture the mood with this beautiful composition, and so beautifully played. Gorgeous Robin.

Wow, Robin.  That is a stunningly beautiful piece.  Haunting and mournful with a genuine sense of melody nonetheless.  And what patient and sensitive playing on both your parts. The two instruments just seem to weave around each other.
