  • Hi Viola....my mum use to play the organ for church in lochbroom and my father used to precent when she wasnt there.... Ill call home and try find out for you! Though I cant remember a tune myself called Lochbroom ever used in church.

    On another thought though, I was a taught a tune years ago called Lochbroom. Its in the Patrick MacDonald collection, but I dont imagine it could ever be used for psalm singing.

  • Called my mother, and she cant ever remember a tune to that name being used.

    She did advise however that you contact the Free Church in Ullapool and ask them. Theyre lovely folk up there so will surely help you out.

  • Thank you very much for your help, Ive emailed the church. Have a good new year, and good luck with all your music.
  • viola, theres a reference to psalm 103 and the tune Lochbroom here, near the foot of page 10:

  • thank you RacH and partanface, the suggestions have been followed up. The obituary in the monthly Record was interesting, thank you for finding it . Ill let you know how I get on.
  • I am familiar with it being sung for Psalm 107 (they that go down to the sea in ships), and if so, Kristine Kennedy is your girl. http://www.musicinscotland.com/acatalog/Kristine_Kennedy_CDs.html
  • Thank you all, Ive managed to track down the solfa, courtesy of the church in Ullapool, where the composer is an elder. Ill look at the Krisine Kennedy reference as well, thanks again.
  • Viola,

    I have been asked by the minister in the "Fishermen's Church" in Eyemouth if I can source the music to the tune Loch Broom. He is looking to use it to Psalm 107 (They that go down to the sea in ships) at a service to commemorate the Eyemouth fishing disaster of 1881. I notice that you managed to source a sol-fa version of the tune. Would it be possible to get a copy of this and I will transcribe it into staff notation. If it would be of use to you I would send you back a copy of the staff version.

    Regards.

  • Hi Andrew, I'm not sure who Viola is anymore. She first posted in 2007!
