Subject: Lyr Req: Clan Ranald's Welcome
From: Em Lindsay

I'm searching for the lyrics to "Clan Ranald's Welcome", on Alastair McDonald's "Bonnie Prince Charlie" album, but I can't seem to find anything on this song. It's a Gaelic song, so I'm not sure whether it has another name in Gaelic, but on the album it's listed as simply "Clan Ranald's Welcome". According to the introduction, it's a song of welcome and support for Prince Charles that's supposed to take place upon his arrival at Eriskay. I really love this song and would love to have the words, and if possible a rough translation, as I can only understand bits of it. Anyone?

I arranged and produced the LP 'Bonnie Prince Charlie' sung by Alatair McDonald. The version Alastair sings has the same chorus as Oran Eile Don Phrionnsa but only one verse is similar. I suggest you contact Alatair through his record company Corban Music which you will find by 'Googling'.

Subject: Lyr Add: ORAN EILE DON PHRIONNSA (A McDonald)
From: Jim Dixon

Here are the lyrics to ORAN EILE DON PHRIONNSA as sung by Capercaillie on "Glenfinnan (Songs of the '45)" (1995) copied and pasted from Celtic Lyrics Corner at its new(er) website. On that page, the song is credited to "Alexander MacDonald" (sic). It sounds like the same song that is called CLAN RANALD'S WELCOME on Alexander McDonald's album "Bonnie Prince Charlie" (2003). I have listened to both on Spotify. On both recordings, the lyrics are in Gàidhlig (Scottish Gaelic).


Gàidhlig

Sèist:
Thug ho-o, laithill ho-o
Thug o-ho-ro an aill libh
Thug ho-o, laithill ho-o
Seinn o-ho-ro an aill libh

Och 'sa mhaduinn's mi dusgadh
'S mor mo shunnd's mo cheol-gaire
O'n a chuala mi 'm Prionnsa
Thighinn do dhuthaich Chlann Ra'ill

O'n a chuala mi 'm Prionnsa
Thighinn do dhuthaich Chlann Ra'ill
Grainne mullaich gach righ thu
Slan gum pill thusa, Thearlaich

Grainne mullaich gach righ thu
Slan gum pill thusa, Thearlaich
'S ann th 'n fhior-fhuil gun truailleadh
Anns a ghruadh is mor-naire

'S ann th 'n fhior-fhuil gun truailleadh
Anns a ghruadh is mor-naire
Mar ri barrachd na h-uaisle
'G eirigh suas le deagh-nadur

Mar ri barrachd na h-uaisle
'G eirigh suas le deagh-nadur
Us nan tigeadh tu rithist
Bhiodh gach tighearn' 'n aite

English

Chorus (after each verse):
Thug ho-o, laithill ho-o
Thug o-ho-ro an aill libh
Thug ho-o, laithill ho-o
Seinn o-ho-ro an aill libh

Early as I awaken
Great my joy, loud my laughter
Since I heard that the Prince comes
To the land of Clanranald

Since I heard that the Prince comes
To the land of Clanranald
Thou art the choicest of all rulers
Here's a health to thy returning

Thou art the choicest of all rulers
Here's a health to thy returning
His the royal blood unmingled
Great the modesty in his visage

His the royal blood unmingled
Great the modesty in his visage
With nobility overflowing
And endowed with all good nature

With nobility overflowing
And endowed with all good nature
And shouldst thou return ever
At his post would be each laird
