A lament for All Souls

This lament by Iain Dall MacKay was composed on hearing of the death of Patrick Og MacCrimmon - a family famous for its piping tradition whom I first saw mentioned in the writings of George Macdonald Fraser.

A commenter to the above notes that MacKay was mistaken, so that his friend heard the lament. A 1927 recording is here.
