Duanaire na Sracaire: Songbook of the Pillagers
Birlinn
This is a (much bigger) companion to Gàir nan Clàrsach, covering medieval Scottish Gaelic poetry up to c.1600AD. Unfortunately none of this bardic verse is presented with its music, though for sure all of these poems were originally performed as song with Gaelic harp accompaniment. Each poem is given in Gaelic and with an English translation. There is a good introduction as well. Out of print
