Another one that sounds great in G minor is Twin Sisters - G minor gives it a slightly Middle Eastern sound.
I like the sound of that, but when I put 'Twin Sisters' into JC's tune finder I get a Strathspey, a reel in GMaj and the tune for the Upton Upon Severn Stick Dance.
Do you have the notation / link to a recording?
I have attached a PDF file of Twin Sisiters in G minor to this posting (at least I hope I have because it is the first time I have tried to do so on this forum!) The basses are the ones I tend to play, but you may want to change them - or may need to if you don't have B flat, E flat and F natural!

I have two G/C melodeons with different accidental button layouts. One tune that I've been playing a lot lately to get used to switching between the two boxes is Meet Me To-Night In Dreamland. It gives my little finger a real workout on the Nik with the "standard" accidental layout. With some of the accidentals on the two-button third row of the Lorelei it's a bit easier. Please excuse the chords in the abc. They're still a work in progress.

Slight thread drift here because this tune only has a couple of accidentals. The key change maintains interest and I think it's a prime candidate to be 'morrised' (although it probably already has by someone somewhere). The abc was skilfully transcribed by David Barnert of the forum.
