'Return My Sweet Love' is an anonymous folk tune from the County Down area of the North of Ireland where I grew up. It is a lament and was believed to be written by a fisherman's wife from Bangor awaiting his return from sea after a turbulent storm. As a child I would hear this played in late night music sessions by the fire in our living room at home accompanied by far-fetched stories and mythical tales. I have used the first few pitches of the tune and tried to reflect the melancholy of the original.
