The Last Rose of Summer recordings

In commemoration of 2021, my first full year as an ex-violinist, I’m posting a series of rare (and not so rare) recordings of my former self. These two performances of “The Last Rose of Summer” were recorded over 30 years apart! Which do you prefer?

(It’s amazing how much more music you can write when you give up practicing!)
