The setting…

is somewhere between Dr. Angus MacDonald’s recording and from a class with Wendy MacIsaac and Allan MacDonald.

Certainly well-known to anyone who has been to the Ceolas Summer School !

Elizabeth’s big coat. tiz a topper.

Found myself playing this this morning, just a little different from Malcom’s setting, by one leading note for the 2nd part and one other in the initial bar of the 1st part, but it’s how I’m playing it so thought I’d add it as a setting.

Elizabeth’s great coat
Is on Anna, the fiddler’s daughter
Elizabeth’s great coat
Is on Anna as she goes to be married
Elizabeth’s great coat
Is on Anna, the fiddler’s daughter
Elizabeth’s great coat
Is on Anna as she goes to be married

Anna, on Anna
On Anna, the fiddler’s daughter
On Anna, on Anna
On Anna as she goes to be married
Anna, on Anna
On Anna, the fiddler’s daughter
On Anna, on Anna
On Anna as she goes to be married
