If you like Scottish music, try 'The Complete Songs of Robert Burns' by Linn Records. This is a series of CD's which has every song that Burns had a hand in. That of course includes many of the old Scots songs which he rescued from oblivion. To hear some sound clips, go to www.towerrecords.com and type Robert Burns in the 'search' box. This is the first CD of the series and the others only get better. I think they've just released Vol.7. There is no operatic singing, just good down to earth Scottish folk music with simple Scottish instruments.
