The first part of the set is a British Isle standard with a tale of love and yearning, followed by a solo Scottish harp rendition of a raucous little Scottish tune, taught to Abigail through the aural tradition by master Celtic harper and teacher, Kim Robertson.
He Moved Through the Faire:
My own love said to me: "My mother won't mind.
And my father won't slight you for your lack of kind."
He went away from me and this he did say:
"It will not be long, Love, 'til our wedding day."
He went away from me and he moved through the faire.
And slowly they watched him move here and move there.
He went his way homeward with one star awake.
As the swan in the evening moves over the lake.
I dreamed last night that my own Love came in.
He came in so sweetly, his feet made no din.
He crept close beside me and this he did say...
It will not be long Love 'til our wedding day.
