  Mary Young and Fair

Mary Young and Fair is a beautiful slow air from the Scottish Gaelic tradition (its proper title is Mairi bhan óg), and first appeared in The Airs and Melodies Peculiar to the Highlands of Scotland and the Isles (Ed. Capt Simon Fraser, 1815). At one point Gaelic words were added, but it is as an air that it is best known now. A special mandolin tremolo harmony can be seen here.
