Mheall thu mheall thu mheall thu mi (audio)

A love song written in the year 1808 by a MacLeod of Bru, a village on the west side of Lewis.

It shows clearly how Gaelic song can be sensual without being crude, and mercifully, the Victorian censors didn't get their hands on all our more realistic love songs.

It shows too that the Gael is a man of romance, perhaps, but not one of romanticism.
