Old and still popular Hebridean folk song. The music is available in the keys of C minor, D minor (the original key) and E minor.
The original Gaelic words are anonymous (traditional)
The Lowlands Scots version is by James Hogg (from his Ettrick Shepherd).
The mp3 is an electronic audio preview using a clarinet sound to represent the voice.
The original publication (in D Minor) by Boosey & Co, on which these transcriptions are based, was copyrighted by Marjory Kennedy-Fraser in 1909, so it is now in the public domain.
