Program Notes

This lyrical and gentle setting of the traditional Scottish folksong Annie Laurie is a welcome, warm selection for any program. The well-crafted and expressive scoring will make less-experienced ensembles sound their best. Clarinets introduce the endearing melody, followed in turn by flutes, trumpets.

- Program Note adapted from publisher


A Scottish Ballade is a setting of the traditional Scottish song Annie Laurie, which was written by her sweetheart William Douglas in the 19th century. The song became a favorite of Scottish soldiers during the Crimean War.

Maxwelton's braes are bonnie,
Where early fa's the dew,
Twas there that Annie Laurie
Gave me her promise true.
Gave me her promise true -
Which ne'er forgot will be,
And for bonnie Annie Laurie
I'd lay me down and dee.
