Brother James’ Air is a beautiful setting of a familiar Scottish hymn tune. Written by James Leith MacBeth Bain, or ‘Brother James,’ as an accompaniment for the 23rd Psalm (The Lord is My Shepherd), it was first printed in London in 1915. Originally titled Marosa to honour the seventh daughter of a friend whom he had christened, the melody eventually came to be known by its present name.

    Good duet for Good Shepherd Sunday especially for Zoom services during pandemic. I recorded the flute part on electronic keyboard and played along with bassoon.
