By the Waters of Babylon

Have a go at playing this gentle piece which also works very well as a round if you are playing with other musicians.

Player 1 starts the tune and at bar 5 the next person starts to play from the beginning, a third person can start on bar 9 and hey presto, you have a beautiful round.
