Patrick Og MacCrimmon’s Lament was written by John Dall MacKay. The story goes that John Dall heard that Patrick Og had passed away, so he wrote this lament. Upon hearing the news, Patrick Og summoned John Dall to play the tune for him. Patrick Og liked the tune so much that he said he would like it to remain named as it was. The tune features High G prominantly throughout, making use of both embari and edari movements.
