This arrangement of Scottish traditional songs includes three iconic Scottish melodies: Bluebells of Scotland, Turn Again, Thou Fair Elisa, and Annie Laurie. Thelong soaring melodies and bagpipe-style drones of these songs work beautifully forhorn quartet. These arrangements are ideal for weddings, preludes, funerals,and any recital.

Theorigins of Scottish traditional music date back to at least the late MiddleAges, with songs passed down orally until many of the songs were published incollections in the 18th century. Scotland’s “National Poet” RobertBurns (1759-1796) famously collected Scottish folk songs and adapted many ofthe melodies to include his poetry.

Today,elements of Scottish traditional music are found in epic film soundtracks suchas Braveheart, Mary Queen of Scots, and Rob Roy, as well as classical symphonicworks including Mendelssohn’s “Scottish” symphony.

Bluebellsof Scotlandwas most famously used by Arthur Pryor in his piece “Blue Bells of Scotland”for solo trombone and band. There are a few different versions of the melody TurnAgain, Thou Fair Elisa, but the melody Robert Burns used (as published inthe 1903 edition of “The Songs of Robert Burns”) is arguably the mostbeautiful. The timeless song Annie Laurie describes the ill-fatedromance between Scottish soldier William Douglas and Annie Laurie, the youngdaughter of a British aristocrat. The music is often attributed to Lady JohnScott (1810-1900).
