Abstract

The first song is a celebration of the Battle of Rosline, which had occurred 500 years earlier. The song celebrates the bravery of the Scots who overcome 3 to 1 odds and route the English, featuring a romanticized depiction of medieval Scots fighting in tartan plaid and bonnets. The second song is the humorous portrayal of a sailor who has a wife at “every port.” The last two are love songs where young men declare their undying love to their sweethearts, with varying degrees of success.
