Griogal Cridhe - (Beloved Gregor, also known as The Glenlyon Lament) Several versions of this traditional song exist. Said to be composed by his wife, the song is a lament for Gregor Ruadh of Glenstrae, beheaded in front of his wife and child by Colin Campbell of Glenorchy in 1570.

‘S Fhada Leam an Oidhche Gheamhraidh (I Feel The Winter Night Long) - An immigrant’s longing for his home on the Isle of Lewis. Composed by Murdo MacFarlane (the Melbost Bard), 1901-1982.

Coill’ an Fhàsaich (Remembering Waternish, also known as The Wilderness Wood) - Composed by Donald MacKillop of Berneray, North Uist, the song paints a picture of a now deserted Skye landscape where he once played happily as a child.

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
