the ABCs as originally posted ended up with twice as many beats as a measure of 4/4 should have. Changing L:1/16 was a fix for that. Now the measures have been split in two, so that works out, too--at least as far as the math is concerned. I’m not quite sure that squeezing a 3/2 tune into 4/4 serves the piece all that well.
For phrasing’s sake…
I’ve changed it to a 3/2. The ABCs were the same from initial posting up until I changed them to 3/2.
The extra beats in bars 4 and 8 I have posted above are as Dr. Angus MacDonald phrased it. I guess common time isn’t quite right there. 4/2 then?
The Pompous Trousers
I’m playing it as Dr Angus does on “A’ Sireadh Spors”, a great tune that has been running round my head for the best past month or so…..
Just to confuse things a little
Here’s the Batties with an arrangement of “A’ Bhriogais Uallach” a commercial job by the looks of it and quite good.

I love this! Thanks for posting. I’m always on the look-out for more puirt-à-beul, and it’s great to see Ewen Henderson from Mànran making an appearance!
Have you ever seen Kim Carnie (the newest addition to Mànran) singing it alongside Henderson and the rest of the band? I think she d0es an exceptional job, though I somehow get the feeling some of you would find it rubbish and not “traditional” enough, haha. Oh, well—to each his own.
