MORE N'IGHEAN GHIBERLAIN. AKA - "Mòr nighean a' ghiobarlain." AKA and see "Gaberlunzie's Daughter (The)." Scottish, Air (4/4 time). G Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. Appears in one of James Oswald's 1742 collections entitled Curious Scots Tunes. The song (with tune) was also collected by Elizabeth Jane Ross (1789-1875) from singers on the island of Raasay around 1812, and appears in her manuscript collection [1]. Ross played the piano and the harp, and reportedly was an excellent amateur musician. As a ward of Lord Moira, she traveled to India with her sister, where she married Sir Charles D'Oyly, baronet, who worked for the East India Company. He was a talented painter, and their home at Patna in Bihar became a focal point of artistic activity for the expatriate community.
