about

The Caoineag was a banshee spirit attached to Scottish Highland clans; she could be heard wailing at the bottom of waterfalls before death or catastrophe.

Lisa sings an adapted version of the ‘The Border Widow’s Lament,’ its text from ‘A Choice Collection of Several Scots Miscellanie Poems and Songs.’ I use the tune from ‘The Highland Widow’s Lament’ – a song I know best from the opening of the 1973 film The Wicker Man. Both songs are about the Glencoe Massacre of 1692.

Includes a treated recording of a waterfall on Fair Isle made by Grace Parnaby, aged 7.
