Songs of the Bard

In the latest episode of Outlander 1x03 some beautiful Gaelic songs could be heard.

I was so happy when I recognized the first one almost instantly. On rewatching the episode I also recognized the second song, which followed right after in the same scene. That only leaves the third one at the end a riddle…

1. Song:

Hi`uraibh `o, ghra`idh an tig thu? (Will you return, my love?)

I have a beautiful version sung by Martyn Bennett, which you can listen in to here:

Listen from 0:50 to hear the part sung in the episode.

2. Song:

Bheir Mí Ó

I know this song from the wonderful Celtic Tenors, but there are many versions out there. You can listen to it here:
