DASG is delighted to present a collection of audio files recorded by Professor C.I.N. MacLeod. Interviews principally took place in Nova Scotia, Canada, but other informants come from locations such as Ontario, Canada; North Carolina, U.S.A.; and Canna, Scotland.
Within this collection will be found carols, church services, conversations, hymns, interviews, music, opera, psalms, and songs. Most of the material is in Scottish Gaelic, but some recordings also feature English or French.
