Many a name I know, But never a name like this.

Is there a recording online or perhaps on CD of Ticonderoga, Robert Louis Stevenson's ballad about a curse on a Scottish highlander that is realized years later during a battle of the French and Indian War?

I've found a Project Gutenberg computer-read version, or at least a reference to it, but no recording of a person reading the poem. It seems like someone must have done a reading of this that has been preserved (because it is a great, booming ghost story, with lots of foreboding and sharp thrills), but maybe not.

Best answer: That is just begging for a MetaFilter Jobs request to be read aloud by a Scot. That, and maybe "The Cremation of Sam McGee" by Robert Service.
