Program Notes

Based on the Scottish folk song Loch Lomond, this gorgeous arrangement paints a lovely musical portrait of the picturesque lake at the foot of Ben Lomond. Woodwind tremolos are used to represent the shimmering waters of the loch, and the evolving and evocative scoring transports the listener to a truly magic land. A great way to show off the many facets of your band's musicality.

- Program Note by publisher


Based upon the Scottish folk song Loch Lomond, this beautiful folk tune was first published in 1841 as part of the collection Vocal Melodies of Scotland. The original composer is unknown to this day; however, hundreds of versions, arrangements and interpretations are known to exist. Loch Lomond is located at the foot of the mountain Ben Lomond between the counties of Dunbartonshire and Stirlingshire. The tune itself is often the last song played after an evening of partying and revelry. Highlander Lullaby is a beautiful tribute to this wonderful Scottish folk song, invoking the beauty of Scotland and her people.
