Subject: Scottish Carol/Hymn Tune
Hi All,

I've got a lovely earwig that's bugging me. It's a beautiful lullaby-like Scottish-sounding carol/hymn with a pensive tempo that fits an meter (I heard it this morning to When Christ Our Lord to Andrew Cried, but I know this tune is not that hymn's traditional setting), but searches have failed so far.

The first line might look something like this if C were tonic, though I know it's not this high:
 search Musipedia for this

(c''8 d''8 e''4 a''4 g''8 e''8 d''8 c''8 a'4 a'4 g'4)

Help would be appreciated!

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
