X:1 T:I wish I wer for hellen lyes N:A version of the lament "Helen of Kirkconnell" M:3/2 L:1/8 B:Bowie Manuscript (c. 1695, f.33) N:The MS was once in the possession of George Bowie, who entered his N:name with the date 1705 in the front. It is unlikely that Bowie was the author N:of the MS., which, at any rate contains a number of known and suspected N:compositions of John McLachlan, an Edinburgh musician in the 1690's.
