Abstract

Four songs on a variety of topics, including a young man who leaves his rural home to find work in the city, which doesn’t work out very well for him or his dog, and so he returns home again; a celebration of the beauty of the wooded glen of the Trossachs and surrounding natural features, enhanced by the presence of the singer’s lover; a marching song calling the Highland soldiers to war on behalf of Britain, written by Sir Walter Scott; and the happy story of two young lovers in the countryside.
