The lyrics to this song were originally from a poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, an American born in 1850, and was originally published in the book ''Yesterdays'' in 1910. Megan composed the tune and arranged the lyrics.
East to West - Kenna Robertson
We all hope this is the first of many tunes from Kenna. This clarsach tune gives an eastern flavour to the album.

The Gael - Dougie MacLean
We were introduced to this tune by Lisa MacNeil, our Gàidhlig teacher, and we composed the lyrics which has let us put our own stamp on the tune. They are from an old Gaelic proverb: “Thig crioch air an saoghal, ach mairidh gaol is mairidh ceòl” ''The world will pass away, but love and music will endure''

Megan wrote this tune for her Granny who lived in Meoble as a child in the house ''Inverosie''
