Eight Early Scottish Carols
edited by Kenneth Elliott
Eight carols, mostly of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries - some hitherto unpublished - now collected together in new editions for the first time. They range from a thirteenth-century conductus from the St Andrews Music Book to new Scots words for a seventeenth-century English ballad tune and a reworking of a fifteenth-century carol text to new Scots partsong music of about 1600.
