Beautiful

the fiddle seems to be able to draw out the most sorrow and despair and leave a little hope before it departs

Love this song! Filled with so much emotion�� Perhaps that's why my school's orchestra plays this song every year at graduation. This year it will be my turn and hearing this makes it so bittersweet ����

A great expression of the sadness brought by the Civil War.

I actually listened to this before i watched ken burns' the civil war. Then when i watched it i enjoyed it that much more.

I love this piece. It alone got me to start create a station and listen to more of this style of music. Now I cannot get enough of it.

The sun is sinking low
in the sky above Ashokan
The pines and the willows know soon we will part
There's a whisper in the wind
of promises unspoken
and a love that will always remain in my heart

We sang this song in chorus, and it was one of my favorites. There are more verses, just Google it! :D

Letting my child listen to classical music and this is just so powerful, why God gave us instruments

Was this on Ken Burns' "The Civil War"?

One of the very few songs that I will stop what I am doing and listen to every note.

I'd like just once to create something this perfect.

Call me a bittersweet , but this song feels like the beginning of a love story to me.

No fight left in this song. Just sadness and despair after the fight.

This song pulls at the soul. I don't know how better to describe it.

I too have loved this song since being forced to watch the Civil Wars series back in 8th grade. It's the only thing I remember from that entire series.

I like this one; have liked it ever since I saw the Ken Burns _Civil War_ series for the first time, as a matter of fact.
