The Spirit of Scotland

The Spirit of Scotland

Regular price £5.99 Sale

If the bagpipes define the sound of popular Scottish music, then its most influential writer was Robert Burns (1759–96). No fewer than eight songs in this collection set texts by the Scottish Bard, although sadly the identities of the various tunesmiths are unknown.

Most of this collection features skilful arrangements of haunting melodies whose original composers are anonymous (and who therefore lost out on a fortune in royalties!).
