Hi, I was needing to send a pdf document of the melody of Widows Lament for Her Husband Killed at Culloden from the Fraser collection. Normally, I would agree with the sentiment of "buy your own copy of the Fraser Collection..." I actually have the hard bound copy and the spiral bound one already. When I was actually looking where I thought they were, they were both gone. I believe they got shuffled somewhere else in the house when we had to do a major cleaning, so I think they will turn up sometime. In the meantime, I had promised our violin player buddy a copy of the music for a gig this coming Sunday. Does anyone know where there might be an online version of the tune with notes, not ABC. Thanks.

If you do have the abc, there are several programs (including mine) that can print the dots

Phil - If that's The Airs and Melodies Peculiar to the Highlands..., you can download a copy from IMSLP: S.Fraser - The Airs And Melodies... (You need cookie enabled for the site and have to accept a disclaimer on the next page after you click; it's safe!).

If the tune is the same as A Lady to her Husband who was killed at the Battle of Culloden it's on page 85 (103 in the pdf).

Mick

A good website, Mick. If I need to get another copy of my Fraser collection, I can go there. I know my copies are still in the house someplace. I just have to remember my frame of mind when I put things in other places. We were trying to clean the house for a house concert. Usually I try to think of putting things where I can remember. But I failed this time.
