Scotish Minstrel Miscellany

[Old Scottish Music Contents]

The music here is from a series of books I lent Paul Burns out the RSH archive, ‘Scotish Minstrel’ (undated 19thC publications). He has very wonderfully provided these for us from them.

Jenny has kindly loaned to me some rare books in her ‘Scotish Minstrel’ collection of Vocal melodies.

This tune can be found in Volume 5 and is Song 2 entitled ‘The Bonnie Breast Knots.’

The title refers to a lady’s ‘breast knot’- the decoration of ribbons on the bodice of a woman’s dress.

Headphones recommended.

Please Thank Paul for his Contribution to the preservation of Scottish History by

Buying Him a Coffee
