Errol,

Just to get things rolling please find the tunes
in ABC format,being the closest reference I could locate
in my collection of Irish tunes.

I obtained the tunes from:

http://www.gre.ac.uk/~c.walshaw/abc/index/wwabc.html

B:Joyce, P. W.; "Old Irish Folk Music and Songs"

On the basis that I am fishing in the dark here, I have
not taken the extra step of converting these to MIDI.

Neither of those tunes is the one with which I am familiar from a recording by Alistair MacDonald. His words match the ones found in the DT (which unfortunatly don't have a MIDI file with them). I may be able to work out the melody for the song and post an ABC, if that's sufficient.

Jon.....

I have a beautiful recording of Glencoe (or "Massacre of Glencoe", or "Macdonald's Lament") by John McDermott which I'd be happy to share.

Also, the lyric is in my database - ask and ye shall receive. I could also transcribe the melody line if I could figure out how to represent it.

New computer coming, maybe I can crank up some of this notation software.

Hi,

Here you go. (Took the tune off a recording of "the massacre at Glencoe", from a great CD "An audience with Crooked Jack and Billy Maguire".)

It's the tune I've always associated with "the rape of Glencoe". Words are in the database.

Thanks Alison, that's the tune I've heard also. Errol, are you listening? There's software to convert the gobbledegook above into music notation.

Refresh - for the guy from Oldenburg who phoned me last Friday night to ask had I got the sheet music for 'Massacre of Glencoe' (the song by Mudcatter Jim McLean). Hope he sees it! (And hope it's the right tune!)

A very beautiful, but tragic song. In the chorus I'm confused. One line says, "Donald", and the other line says, "Macdonald". I don't understand the difference in the names. Could someone clear this up for me? Thanks-

MacDonald simply means "son of Donald" As a whole the various branches of MacDonald are sometimes collectively called Clan Donald.
