This classic collection, recently reprinted, is comprised of pastorals, marches, strathspeys and reels, hornpipes, laments and songs in memory of a romantic and patriotic past. Music is provided for voice, violin, bagpipe and piano. Devoted to Scottish music, this work contains the mature fruit of a life-long cultivation of the Scottish reel and strathspey. It includes the best work of various composers, together with choice examples of traditional melodies, so that the student of native Scottish music may have an overview of what is best and most enduring in this art.
