Subject: Cape Breton Song
From: peg
Date: 05 Jan 00 - 02:50 PM

This song appears on Capercaille's album Delirium (or maybe it is Get Out). Anyway there are only two verses sung; and no lyrics printed, just an explanation that says it has mutated in the course of oral transmission... Ther lyrics do appear in Songs Remembered in Exile, but I cannot afford this book! Anyone have a copy? or other source for the Scots Gaelic lyrics to this song? It is basically a lament about coming to America and missing Nova Scotia. I have been able to learn to sing it from listening and my own rudimentary knowledge of the language...but want to be sure I am getting the words right. Also would like some more verses. Any help is greatly appreciated! peg

The actual song is Oran Nan Teine. Craig Cockburn and I have been talking about this for a couple of years. Last year I got information on the name of the song. Apparently it was printed in a newspaper, The Casket, in Antigonish sometime in the last 100 years.

B&R Heritage Enterprises

Rosemary Mccormack hasn't been able to locate the song itself. She told me as recently as a year ago that she has it but hasn't been able to locate it.

George, like I mentioned I have learned the lyrics to those first two verses by sounding it out. Since I do know some Scots Gaelic, it all vaguely resembles actual words, but I cannot be completely sure of exactly which ones. In other words, I may think it is a particular word but it could be one that is only similar. So at best I have only been able to reconstruct parts of the lyrics. A Harvard Celtic Studies grad gave a paper at the Colloquium last year on songs from Nova Scotia where he read a verse or two; I asked if I could have a copy of it but he steered me towards that book instead. I have not discovered if the sing actually does reside there. Maybe I will ask Michael next time I se him and say I have had trouble locating those lyrics and would he please let me use his sources. anyway thanks for your help. I am gonna keep looking.

Well, please keep checking here, or e-mail me. I do have that book but I can't see it there.

I know exactly what you mean about the sounds being other words. I have done that sort of thing too, and it takes a long time to work through the possibilities.

Wouldn't mind seeing what you've worked out so far. I have the tape and not the CD so it's more difficult to do the play, back up and re-play thing.

hey george;

well as far as "seeing" it it would be difficult for me to wriet it down since there are several possibilities in Gaelic for some of the lyrics I have worked out... it would be easier for me to sing it for you, actually! this is one I have not recorded since I was never sure how accurate I was, and since I wanted more than two verses...but I do want to record an a cappella version of it *very* badly on any upcoming recording projects I do...i have something in the works but pulling together musicians, etc. is taking some time...

in the meantime I could just make a little old "field" recording on my Sony boombox and send it to you if you are really that interested..

Philippa; thanks for the suggestion. They do not list it there; like I said, the album itself only states the lyrics cannot be translated because they have mutated in the course of oral trasmission, or something like that... I did, however, find lots of lyrics for Ailein Duinn; most of which are very unlike the ones I have been singing for years; seems like there are several versions included there, which is interesting. It is a nice website which I will bookmark. thanks. Stil looking for this song though! Will let y'all know how it turns out.

We're almost there! I got a response to the e-mail I sent Rosemary the other day, after this thread started. She's narrowing down the piles of papers she is sorting through, and thinks it is in the set she is working on right now.

She has remembered the name of the author as being Lachlann Curry, Am Bard Ruadh. Apparently the song is a well turned out one by this bard.

The song is in amongst papers given to Rosemary from the heirs of Joe Lawrence MacDonald. She hopes to type it up in the next day or so for me. So, you'll have it then!

Just to refresh this with a little newer information

It IS mentioned in the book, Songs Remembered in Exile from John Lorne Campbell. This was published in the early 1990s, from Eidophone recordings made by John Lorne Campbell, in the late 1930s.

Appaarently Mr Campbell had recorded this from two informants, Mrs. J.R. Johnston (nee Margaret MacNeil) of Beaver Cove, and also, Mrs David Patterson (nee MacNeil) of Benacadie. The song, Òran Nan Téine, was written by Lachlan MacMhuirich(Currie), Am Bàrd Ruadh. Ths song was about a forest fire that had gotten out of hand when a Cape Bretoner was clearing land to sow.

The last paragraph in the bio of Mrs. Johnston says "that these recordings cannot be played today". Well, it seems to me that I remember reading about some old wax recordings which were "read" by a laser beam and a sound file generated.

Would it be sensible to think that such technology would be able to do the same with Eidophone recordings?

George; these lyrics exactly mimic the first two verses of this song as recorded by Capecaille; so yes, I am guessing it is the same song. I do not know if the tune they used was traditional for these lyrics; it does not really sound like a lullaby to me, as they recorded it; too sad and the rhythm is not very regular...

It also seems to me I have seen more than one song with that lyric and title, dean cadalach samhach; so maybe there's more than one?

I hasten to add that this is in need of some correction. I have " " around letters that were obscure on the fax I got from Pam MacLean of the Angus MacDonald Library at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish. She is sending me the hard copy, which I ought to receive sometime next week, at which point I'll also add the two missing lines indicated with ??.

Interestingly, though it seems to have been the band that said they never wrote out the lyrics because they had been badly corrupted and rendered meaningless through oral transmission, Karen sings EXACTLY what was published in The Casket. She sings verses 1, 3, and 4. I have emailed them and asked if this is their source. Of course, they never answer anything, but they're pretty busy.

The Cape Breton song as recorded by Capercaille does not correpsond to these lyrics at all (it only has two verses, too) but does this song appear on any of their albums with this title??? I am confused. I now want to find a recording of this song as I want to see how these lyrics fit. I am now not sure why George said the "actual song" is this one. Maybe he is thinking of a different recording? The one I originally asked about is indeed Dean Cadalan Samhach.

In any case this adds some new information about more Gaelic songs and that is never wasted effort!

ciarili; are you sure? The album I recall having this one entitles it Cape Breton song, and it is the first two verses of Dan Cadalan Samhach...maybe they have more than one song called the Cape Breton Song? possible. The lyrics tell of missing Nova Scotia after moving to North Carolina...I may be losing my mind but I think I have a pretty solid memory of this as I went to great lengths to listen to it again and again and get the words..I think it may be that in his first post George thought I meant an entirely different song...

In any case thanks for tracking down any of these lyrics! I am always thriled to add to my Gaelic repertoire. I taught this one to my Gaelic Women's poetry class last semester in fact...

BTE Dicho, that song you posted a link to (thanks!) STARTS with what is the SECOND verse of Dean Cadalan Samhach, or, as Capercaille sings it, the Cape Breton Song... I am wondering if we are working with similar texts and different tunes now?

Seriously, the song they list as "Cape Breton Song" is Oran an Téine. I just listened to it from their Live, In Concert album, and it's on Delirium. Dean Cadalan Samhach appears on The Blood Is Strong and Get Out, and was written in North Carolina way back when.

In the notes of the song posted by ciarili today it says that the fire starteed in Iron Mines near Boisedale. I would guess that it should be "Ironville". Iron Mines is on the outskirts of Whycocomagh.

Please note, it isn't Ciarili's fault. The information came from people doing work for Memorial University, who aren't FROM Cape Breton. Either that or they are students who don't t realize they have to check and double-check then triple-check all facts. That is an example of one of the errors that has shown up in the Memorial University information. Been going through them to find out what's what. It's good, but the site isn't GREAT yet.

We'll just have to show them what an interactive system like Mudcat can accomplish in sorting out details like that.

Sandy, your information prompted me to email them and ask after that. It's hard to find decent maps of Cape Breton online, but I managed to find one that showed Iron Mines & Ironville, just 'cause you got me curious! Hopefully they'll confirm their notes or post a correction.

I try and play it on that site RigTim but it it gives me a message in Gaelic saying that it is only for the UK. Strange why the BBC would not allow it to play in Cape Breton !!!???
