Check out all the abc utilities here. With these you'll be able to convert one file type to another with ease.

FYI... there are several versions of this tune: an ancient song version and a distinctly different tune for pipers. Just to complicate things further, there are two settings commonly played for the pipes.

I haven't tried the ceolas soucre that Barry has given but certainly feel that utilities to convert between ABC and MIDI are "essential" tools and are well worth seeking out.

Here is an ABC conversion from the MIDI in the DT:

Opps, that didn't work and I see why... It (Mudcat) didn't like the angle bracket in my conversion...

I will leave it alone..

On second thoughts, I will try again.. I had forgotton about Alan's Mid2Text... here is a different conversion from the same file (ABC is strange...).

As far as I understand it, Mid2Txt was designed to make it possible to post MIDI files to Mudcat which can then be reconverted to MIDI using the Txt2Mid program. One thing with the Mid2Txt is that it also provides an ABC conversion with the line breaks suitable for posting here and presumabl does not produce ABC with symbols that upset the Mudcat system. It can be found at http://www1.tpgi.com.au/users/afostes/miditext.html

Both the 17th and 18th century tunes of that title are given as ABCs in file S1.HTM on my website, and the song from Miss Jane Elliot's MS in in Scarce Songs 1. www.erols.com/olsonw
