Clan Macfie Society Spring Magazine 'The Galley' carried the poem 'Macdubhsithe
Diaspora' By James. A footnote referred to 'work of a sort' being undertaken
to make it a song.
This has now been done and with a little modification it is now on a CD. The same song is included as an mp3 file for download on this page. In Internet explorer the best way to download it is to right click on the link below and select Save Target as... to save the file to disk.
Although substantially compressed the mp3 file is still 3.56MB in size. This should take about 9 minutes to download with a 56K modem or 1 minute with 500K ADSL.
Windows media player should be able to play the file with no trouble. We hope you like our efforts and look forward to receiving (constructive) criticism, email comments to email@example.com
I'm sad to inform those of you who have enjoyed this song since 2003 that James passed away peacefully in his sleep after a short illness on April 4th 2007 aged 84. He was justifiably proud of this song, and very pleased that so many people worldwide have enjoyed listening to it. On his behalf, thank you for your many kind comments.
