Alexander L'Estrange : Auld Lang Syne

The arrangement of the title song. Auld Lang Syne is a bit of a show-stopper with several other Scottish melodies woven in, and this is complemented by a beautiful adaptation of perhaps Scotland's most famous melody, The Skye Boat Song. The final song within this collection is Afton Water, first published or collected by Robbie Burns, the great Scottish poet - it is a gentle, lyrical hymn of praise both to the countryside and to Scotland itself.

Lee R. Kesselman : Scottish Folk Songs : SATB : Sheet Music : Doreen Rao

Lee R. Kesselman : Scottish Folk Songs

"Loch Lomond" is one of the most famous of all Scottish song - a song of friendship, of love, and of parting. While "Auld Lang Syne" has become one of the most familiar in our culture, oft used for ushering in the new year, it remains a heartfelt air, extolling enduring friendship and waxing nostalgic over the passage of time. "The Birks Of Aberfeldy" is a dance piece! Let the rhythm and accents hold sway as the piano rolics and the singers tease, tempt, cajole and invite the Bonnie Lassie! Also Included in this package is the hauntingly beautiful "Skye Boat Song," and "Afton Water."

Songlist: Skye Boat Song, Afton Water, The Birks of Aberfeldy, Auld Lang Syne, Loch Lomond

Afton Water : SAB : Alexander L'Estrange : Sheet Music : 12-0571537804 : 9780571537808

Alexander L'Estrange : Afton Water

Afton Water is a gentle, lyrical hymn of praise both to the countryside of Scotland itself (the word "brae" means "hillside") and to a girl called Mary who lies sleeping by the banks of the river Afton near Ayr, south of Glasgow. The poet entreats the river, blackbirds, lapwings and stock-doves to go about their business quietly, so as not to disturb the "slumbering fair" Mary. Faber Choral Singles offer a series of beautifully crafted arrangements in a diversity of musical styles for today's choirs. From Broadway, pop and folk to spirituals, gospel and original works, the Faber Choral Singles series guarantees the perfect repertoire for every occasion.
