V: Fifty Seventeenth-Century Scots Songs for Solo Voice and Continuo
edited by Kenneth Elliott
This volume contains part of a ‘lost repertory’ of Scots song, hidden since the seventeenth century
in instrumental and often tablature arrangements for lute, cittern and lyra-viol,
now reconstructed and published for the first time.
There are also examples of lute song, consort song and continuo song
in a mixture of Scottish and international styles.
