Tune Leaving Lismore 987

Composed by
Margaret Martin-Hardie
Notes

The database previously attributed this tune to A MacLaren. However this was questioned by Chris Dewhurst who writes:

It is published in the Scots Guards Pipe Music Volume 2, where it is credited to Mrs Martin Hardie; it is used as a hymn tune (for “Spirit of God, Come Dwell Within Me”) in “The Church Hymnary”, where the composer is given as Margaret Martin-Hardie, and it has several other titles, including the Gaelic “Fagail Liosmor”. I notice it is also included in the SCD Database under this name. The MCPS licence for our CD gives the writer’s name as “Hardie”, and indicates that the tune is a “non-copyright work” in the public domain. Many online sources also give Margaret Martin-Hardie as the composer, so whilst I am no expert, it seems likely to me that either the tune was composed by Margaret Martin-Hardie (the most commonly-held view), or that it is a traditional tune which she arranged (for which I have seen no evidence as yet). The name “A MacLaren” (given as the composer in the SCD Database) is not commonly associated with the tune.
