Sons of Glencoe
#15
I did a bit more searching, both on Google and iTunes on "Lament for Glencoe" and it seems there are quite a few "hits" for this, and recordings, including a Glencoe ("a Lament") tune by James Scott Skinner on the Aberdeen University website: however, they all seemed to be different tunes, and I suppose it's not surprising that people feel motivated to write tunes for the events of the 17th century. There are all sorts, from wax cylinder recordings to pipe and fiddle versions, and Kris Drever and Eamonn Coyne doing an instrumental duet on guitar and tenor guitar.
I also looked up "Sons of Glencoe" and Alastair McDonald has recorded a song by this name on one of his many albums - you can find it on iTunes, but it seemed to be a different set of lyrics, so may not be the tune Alcuith was looking for.
