The Simon Fraser Collection brings together the Airs and Melodies peculiar to the Highlands of Scotland and the Isles from 1715 to 1745. Many of the over 240 Airs in this book are Captain Fraser's instrumental settings of Gaelic songs derived from the singing of his father, grandfather and their acquaintances. Other tunes are a mixture of traditional and newly composed strathspeys, reels and jigs from this time period. The music in this book is especially written for those who play the piano, harp, organ and fiddle. People interested in this type of music will be aware of the Simon Fraser Collection due to the history that it is part of. The product has been unavailable for years, which makes it a very popular item.

  • February 22, 2008 An excellent collection

    This is a great collection of Scottish melodies. The only thing lacking is a guide on how to play them. For that I recommend the Caledonian Companion.
