Historical Notes:

ARosebud By My Early Walk - This RobertBurns song, written in 1787, was dedicated to a Miss Jean Cruickshank who wasthe daughter of the Latin master at the High School of Edinburgh.  Jean was only 12 years old when Burns wrotethis but she was an accomplished singer who performed Burns' songs whileaccompanying herself on the piano.

O’er The Water To Charlie - Of Scottish origin, this melody can be found under many othernames, including 'The Pot Stick', ' Wishaw’s Delight', 'Sean Buidhe', 'Over The Water’ and ‘ComeBoat Me O’er To Charlie’.  RobertBurns (1759-96) penned the lyrics about Bonnie Prince Charlie and the song wasfirst published in the 'Scots MusicalMuseum' in 1787.

The Banks O’ The Dee - According to John Glen (1900)this song was written in 1775 by John Tait, who for some time sat as judgein the Police Court, Edinburgh.  It waswritten on the occasion of the departure from Scotland of his dear friend tojoin the British forces at the start of the American War of Independence.  Although the accompanying tune is thought tobe of Irish origin, Glen was unable to find it in any early Irish songcollections.  It does, however, appear tohave been very popular in Scotland, and was used not only to accompany Tait'sverses but also two other songs found in Wilson's 'St Cecilia' (1779).  It alsoappears in the first publication of the ‘ScotsMusical Museum’ (between 1787-1803).
