Default Re: MacGregor of Rora

The tune is listed on www.ceolsean.net/ in 3 versions, none of them with a composer credited. Apparently it was published in Book 9 of the David Glen collection before 1908 (when book 11 went to print) so FWIW I'd guess that your PM McKillop simply made his own setting of a Trad tune (as PM's are wont to do) and the original composer has simply gone to dust (as composers are wont to do, eventually)

You are probably free to re-arrange/re-shape this piece without problems like infringement of copyright looming over you
