Songs of Scotland
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Join the National Youth Choir of Scotland as it presents a patriotic programme of Scottish songs, including John Gardner's A Burns Sequence, a dynamic setting of eight poems by Scotland's favourite son, Robert Burns. The exquisite contrast between the vigorous opening songs and the achingly beautiful My Luve is Like a Red, Red Rose perfectly complements Burns' lyrical writing style. The work flows gently through a playful, waltz-like movement and delicate Scottish love ballad before a brisk, atmospheric march and exultant finale.
