Subject: Tune Req: House of Argyle

In the wikipedia (which, of course, is not always accurate) article about the 1934 Hollywood film of J. M. Barrie's "The Little Minister", it states

"The soundtrack includes the traditional Scottish tunes 'The Bonnie Banks O' Loch Lomond,' 'Comin' Thro' the Rye,' and 'House of Argyle.'"

I am familiar with Loch Lomond and Comin' thro' the Rye, but I have never heard of "House of Argyle". Neither Google, nor YouTube, nor JC's Tune Finder give me any help. Can anyone point me to a source?

Don

Were they thinking about the Bonny House of Airlie, a Child Ballad?

Here is music for "The Bonnie House of Argyle"
a Scottish pipe march. Could that be it?

Also Known as "Wae’s Me For Prince Charlie" in thesession.org. Two different versions are given there, which at first hearing may sound different. Upon close inspection of the notes, they are similar. Sorry about my confusion.

Two versions of the song on youtube:
by Full Set here
and Malinky here

I live in Argyll, just across the loch from Inverary Castle, the home of the Duke,but I've never heard of "House of Argyle".
