    "Gilgamesh, where are you hurrying to?
    You will never find that life for which you are looking.
    When the gods created man they allotted to him death,
    but life they retained in their own keeping"

    This time Anthem was played by the fanfare....
    And yes we're talking about the same music.
    Wales and Bretagne share the same music theme. Celts united!

    Default Silly Wizard - If I was a blackbird (1981)

    "A common theme in Scottish and Irish ballads is that "the young rover" will sail off, see the world and generally have a great time while the young lady in his life sits at home patiently awaiting his return. In this song however the roles are reversed when he returns, after a long absence, just in time to wave goodbye as she sets out on a voyage of her own.

    This is an adaptation of two versions which Andy M Stewart learned from his mother and from his great-aunt Belle Stewart. He has written two new verses and slightly adapted the tune."
    from Album's infos.

    Default Black Is The Colour (Of My True Love's Hair) by Ciara Considine

    "Famed folklorist and musicologist, the late Alan Lomax, attributes "Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair" to Scottish origin, sometime during the 19th century. There's a line in the original version of the song: "I go to the Clyde to mourn and weep / But satisfied I could never sleep," referring to the River Clyde in Scotland." source




    Lyrics differ from one version to another ....

    Black is the color of my true love's hair
    Her lips are like some roses fair
    She has the sweetest smile and the gentlest hands.
    I love the ground whereon she stands

    I love my love and well she knows
    I love the ground whereon she goes.
    And I wish the day, it soon will come
    That she and I will be as one

    I'll go to the Clyde and I'll mourn and weep
    Where satisfied I never shall be
    I'll write her a letter, just a few short lines
    And suffer death ten thousand times


    "Gilgamesh, where are you hurrying to?
    You will never find that life for which you are looking.
    When the gods created man they allotted to him death,
    but life they retained in their own keeping"

    Default MacCrimmon's Lament by Robyn Stapleton

    Song starts on 1.48

    A Jacobite song lamenting the loss of a piper during the rebellion of 1745.

    This melody was written by the MacLeod’s piper, Donald Ban MacCrimmon, during the Jacobite rebellion of 1745. Accompanying Chief Norman MacLeod of MacLeod on the Hanoverian side of the rebellion, Donald Ban was captured in December at Inverurie by Jacobite forces, and such was his fame at the time, that the Jacobite pipers all went on strike to protest against his detention. The original Gaelic words to this song have been attributed to a member of MacCrimmon’s family following his death in battle the following year.
    source

    "Gilgamesh, where are you hurrying to?
    You will never find that life for which you are looking.
    When the gods created man they allotted to him death,
    but life they retained in their own keeping"
