The song very much interests me as our amazon parrot's name is Hector! We did not name him, but it was giving as a gift to us before we discovered Celtic culture. It now makes all the sense as the people that gave it to us were MacDonalds!

To request this song, visit this link and look for Hector the Hero:

HECTOR THE HERO


Lament him, ye mountains of Ross-shire;

Your tears be the dew and the rain;

Ye forests and straths, let the sobbing winds

Unburden your grief and pain.

Lament him, ye warm-hearted clansmen,

And mourn for a kinsman so true

The pride of the Highlands, the valiant MacDonald

Will never come back to you.



O, wail for the mighty in battle,

Loud lift ye the Coronach strain;

For Hector, the Hero, of deathless fame,

Will never come back again.



Lament him, ye sons of old Scotia,

Ye kinsmen on many a shore;

A patriot-warrior, fearless of foe,

Has fallen to rise no more.

O cherish his triumph and glory

On Omdurman's death-stricken plain,

His glance like the eagle's, his heart like the lion's

His laurels a nation's gain.




O, wail for the mighty in battle,

Loud lift ye the Coronach strain;

For Hector, the Hero, of deathless fame,

Will never come back again.



O rest thee, brave heart, in thy slumber,

Forgotten shall ne'er be thy name;

The love and the mercy of Heaven be thine;



Our love thou must ever claim.

To us thou art Hector the Hero,

The chivalrous, dauntless, and true;

The hills and the glens, and the hearts of a nation,

Re-echo the wail for you.



O, wail for the mighty in battle,

Loud lift ye the Coronach strain;

For Hector, the Hero, of deathless fame,

Will never come back again.


Composer: James Scott Skinner
