GUEST,Brían Origins: Breastplate of St. Patrick (48) RE: Help: Breastplate of Patrick 05 Jun 01


I found information on a song talked about on an earlier thread:"Leanbh an Áigh"in the Cyber Hymnal, Alison.
The thread was talking about "Morning has Broken".It's author(Leanbh an Áigh) Mary Macdougall Macdonald (1789-1872)was born in 1789, near Bunessan, Isle of Mull, Inner Hebrides. She was the daughter of a Baptist cleric and wife of a small land holder, Mary lived in the village of Cancan. She wrote both songs and poetry in Gaelic.
That gives me some information on the source of the melody.
Brían.
