Ae Fond Kiss

My Cape Breton Home

This set is part of the following collections:

Of Ae Fond Kiss, Sir Walter Scott said, "This... contains the essence of a thousand love tales." It is said that Clarinda (Agnes Maclehose 1758-1841, known as 'Nancy') was the inspiration for this divine song. The original tune was Rory Dall's Port, but somewhere along the way it has been joined with a Gaelic air, Mo Run an Diugh Mar an de Thu (My Love Today and Heretofore).
