THIS GLOOM ON MY SOUL (Tha m'aigne fo ghruaim). Scottish, Slow Air (3/4 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "This air has a variety of Gealic verses to it, but those most entitled to the denomination of a poem, are Dugald Buchanan's reflections on turning up and surveying a scull, which he handles with a versatility of talent worthy of a genuine poet" (Fraser).
