Muile Nam Mor Bheann (Mull Of The High Mountains) - This Gaelic song was composed by Duncan Livingstone (1877-1964) of Crogan, Isle of Mull and one of the many songs taken by emigrants to Nova Scotia. The melody is thought to be older.

Caol Muile (The Sound Of Mull) - Also known as The Iona Boat Song, this is a song about the narrow stretch of water between Mull and Iona, composed by the Rev. John MacLeod of Morvern. Mentioned in ‘Modern Gaelic Bards’ (1908), the song praises the beauty of the area and its menfolk who put to sea, commenting that it will still be there after everyone he knows has left.

An t-Eilean Muileach (The Isle Of Mull) - Lyrics by Dughall MacPhail (1818-1887) from Strathcoil, Mull, author, poet and songwriter. The song praises the beauty of the island.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

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.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

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.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
