Scottish Airs for Pairs

This is the third book in the Airs for Pairs series and the first to focus on the music of one country. Drawn from centuries of Scottish music, the selection includes well-known tunes alongside some rarer gems, as well as two fine modern compositions: my thanks to Brian McNeill and Martin Marroni for permission to include these. The book also includes one arrangement each by Nathaniel Gow and William C Honeyman as interesting examples of previously published duets. Older tunes frequently exist in multiple versions, so while the harmonies work with the versions here they will not necessarily go with different versions which you may already know. Bowings have been included as a guide for the less experienced, but more experienced players will feel free to use their own. The harmonies ar there to enhance the tunes, so it is often effective to play the tune solo or in unison first before adding the harmony, which should never drown the melody. Ornamentation is an integral part of this music but it has not been written in, leaving scope for personal style and the exuberance of the moment enjoy the music!
