Alas, the poor singing is my own. I haven’t thought of this little refrain in twenty years, but suddenly I can’t get it out of my head.
It’s classical, probably a string piece, maybe viola or cello concerto or sonata? I think it is either a Slavic work or in the style of one. Eastern European, perhaps.
Not sure of the original key, but I’m singing it in C minor – here’s a sample chord to give you an idea of what I’m going for… sorry in advance for my bad pitch.
