Mary Young & Fair (Mairi Bhan Og)

Mary Young & Fair
This set is part of the following collections:


Mary Young and Fair is a beautiful slow air from the Scottish Gaelic tradition (its proper title is Mairi bhan og), and first appeared in The Airs and Melodies Peculiar to the Highlands fo 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.
