Song composed by Dòmhnall Ruadh Chorùna (Donald MacDonald of Coruna), a Scottish-Gaelic poet from North Uist, whilst fighting in the battle of the Somme, in the trenches of the Great War, for his love, Mhagaidh Nic Leòid (Maggie MacLeod). As performed by Julie Fowlis from the album Dual, that is very much recommended to lovers of Gaelic song and/or culture.
Gealach Bhuidhe an Abachaidh (Harvest Moon) was recorded by Donnie MacDonald back in the late seveties, as a solo artist and also as the title track of a Men of Worth recording withJames Keigher. This record was either 1993 or 1994.
Voi Che Sapete from the Mozart opera "The marriage of Figaro" was translated into Scottish Gaelic as "Nighneagan Oga" (literally "Young Girls") by the late Donald John MacDonald of South Uist and is performed here by Mary Sandeman.
Brian Ó hEadhra and Bruce MacGregor perform the song Tàladh Na Beinne Guirme written by Goiridh Dòmhnallach and Brian Ó hEadhra. Goiridh mac Alasdair Dhùghaill (Jeff MacDonald) - I grew up in Kingsville which is in St. Mary of the Angels Parish, a great, Gaelic community in Cape Breton Island. I began learning Gaelic seriously at the age of 19 and was extremely blessed to be able to learn from some of the local tradition-bearers, some of the best in the Cape Breton Gaelic tradition. I come from a very musical family, the MacDonalds of Queensville. The Song A Bheinn Ghorm, the Blue Mountain, runs through Glendale, Kingsville and Queensville and has been a backdrop for our Gaelic way of life there since the first settlers began coming to the area at the end of the 18th century. I was asked by the organizers of the Celtic Colours festival to work with Brian O hEadhra (from Ireland and Scotland) on composing a Gaelic song when he would visit the island in the fall of 2004. This is the result of our collaboration. It lets on that the mountain is telling its story about the arrival, success and decline of Bràigh na h-Aibhneadhs Gaels (Bràigh na h-Aibhneadh is the Gaelic name for our area). The mountain grew to love the people and laments the decline of the Gaelic language and culture there. The mountain will eternally sing its lullaby to its foster-children who slumber in the soil of Bràigh na h-Aibhneadh.

Introduced by Mike Harding on his brilliant BBC Radio2 show: www.bbc.co.uk Taking their name from the Gaelic word for kinship, Gaelic supergroup Dàimh (pronounced da-eve) return with their eagerly anticipated second album. The charging pipe and fiddle-led assault has seen Dàimh gigging far and wide, and their line-up now also includes Gaelic singer Calum Alex MacMillan from Lewis. They fuse together music from across the Celtic diaspora in a celebration of their common ground. Diversions brings another high-energy, fast-flowing mixture of music from the Gaelic cultural tradition. Songs old and new cover all the favourite subjects of the Gaels - love, death, war and drink. The band have previously been nominated for Scottish Folk Band Of The Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards, and Calum Alex has been a Mod Gold Medallist and nominee for STMA Gaelic Singer Of The Year. Dàimh are Angus MacKenzie (Highland pipes, Border pipes), Colm O' Rua (banjo, mandola), Gabe McVarish (fiddle), Ross Martin (guitar), James Bremner (bodhran) and Calum Alex MacMillan (vocals) with special guests Donald Shaw (piano, organ), Iain MacDonald (flute), Niall Vallely (concertina), Caoimhin Vallely (piano) and Norrie McIver (vocals). "These musicians were born to this. Dàimh celebrate Celtic traditions with passion and pride, and it shows in this stunning recording..."

Narelle LOVES Musicnotes.com because it revolutionized finding and purchasing sheetmusic. The Musicnotes website offers a pile of other music-related features, one of which is the YouPerform monthly contest, for which this video was created. Elaine and Narelle enjoyed making it, and hope you enjoy listening. You'll probably recognize the melody made famous by Cat Stevens in the early 1970s, "Morning Has Broken", which was based on a song by Scottish composer Mary MacDonald (1789 - 1872). The original lyrics for her hymn entitled "Leanabh an Aigh" were in Gaelic. When the hymn was translated into English by Lachlan Macbean, the song was renamed "Bunessan" after a Scottish village close to Mary MacDonalds hometown of Ardtun. Musicnotes didn't supply any of these lyric versions in their "Bunessan" arrangement, so we decided to go with the Vocalise method. blog.musicnotes.com Thank you so much to all those who voted for Elaine and I in the March edition of Musicnotes' YouPerform contest. There was such an enthusiastic response to the competition that the organizers have sponsored 2nd and 3rd place prizes for that and all future competitions provided there is a minimum of 10 entries. Clicking the above link will take you to where you can view comments from the 3 winners and listen to their music.
