Subject: RE: Origins: Coming Through The Rye
Comin' Thro' The Rye is one of those songs that sadly, has in the past, often been sung by tartan tenors / screeching sopranos as an 'art ' song, with Morningside/Milngavie- excruciating vowels instead of a guid Scots tongue.
I hope nowadays that people are more familiar with the folk/ traditional versions of Burns' and other Scottish songs -- tho' Ah hae ma doots!
