Subject: RE: Tune Req: What are your favorite Scottish tun
Here is a purely unbiased, perhaps naive (because I have an untrained ear), list of Scottish songs that appeal to me. A few I remember from childhood, others I discovered within this last year. My only criteria is "the sound." (I'm hopelessly in love with the Scottish sound.) Most can be found at Lesley's site.

A Man's a Man For a That Annie Laurie The Bluebells of Scotland Bonnie Doon The Campbells Are Comin' Charlie is My Darling Come By the Hills Flow Gently Sweet Afton The Four Marys The Land of the Leal Loch Lomond Of Thee I Dream (Mo Shuil Ad Dheigh) Prince Charlie Rare Willie Scotland the Brave The Great Silkie The Skye Boat Song Wi' A Hundred Pipers Will Ye No Come Back Again (Bonnie Charlie) ...Scottish lullabies? Can Ye Sew Cusions Mist Covered Mountains (Smile in Your Sleep Hush Ye, My Bairnie (Carogan Gaolach) Lady Anne Bothwell's Lament (Baloo My Boy)

...and of course, "Wild Mountain Thyme" whether Scottish or Irish ;-)

BTW, does anyone know the names of the Scottish tunes in Max Bruch's "Scottish Fantasy"? The 1st, 2nd, and 4th movements can be heard at The Classical Midi Connection under Bruch in the Romantic section.
