about

Rena says of this tàladh (lullaby), “I was taught this song by Margaret Stewart, who had found it in the archives during her work for Tobar an Dualchais. She thinks that it is the older, more original version of a popular lullaby called Bidh Clann Ulaidh. I much prefer the older version.” There are three renditions sung by Rena on this recording. The first she sings at a cèilidh, unaccompanied. The second was recorded immediately afterwards, repeated at Margaret Bennett's request with the listeners supplying a bagpipe-like drone (the inspiration for the final piece). I asked Rena to record a studio version so that I could blend the three.
