searching Scottish tune

Post by Stephen » Mon May 23, 2016 10:48 am

Cd 3 of my "Myths & Traditions: Irish & Celtic Music" 4 Cd-box has a traditional tune, played on harp solo, and it is given the very "unique" name of "Scottish love song"...

There's a zillion of scottish love songs on YT, and I'm looking for the sheet music.

It sounds like a slow 6/8 tune, but could be notated in another meter.
Anyone knowing the original title of this traditional tune?

Hi Stephen,
I don't recognise the tune but if you can enter some of the notes into folktunefinder.com then the programme may be able to identify it.

Thank you for the link to the tune finder.
Problem is I don't have the sheet music yet, the only thing I have is the title, "Scottish love song".

It's track 22 of CD3, but the title probably is not the original one.

Wanted to play this slow and dreamy tune on english concertina.

Stephen,
I am Scottish. I don't have the Gaelic language but recognise this tune as one of Scottish Gaelic origin.
I'm sure you will soon get an answer if you direct the sound clip to a Scottish Gaelic music website.
