Thread Name: Origins: Old Scottish Lament / Fear a Bhata
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Old Scottish Lament / Fear a Bhata
For a pronunciation guide, try listening to some of the postings on YouTube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWLZ4T8QqHo&NR=1 (Capercaillie - only a couple of verses but clearly pronounced)
or
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKVxdiW44Ds&feature=related (young girl - amateur singer, bit out of tune but seems to sing all verses and no instruments so you can hear the words)
There are many more versions if you try searching with different spellings (Fear a bata, Fear a bhata, Phir an bhata etc.)
