Dorothea's Lullaby - Gaelic air

Post by glen » Wed Aug 12, 2020 3:40 pm

This Gaelic Air has been composed in honor of Lady Dorothea Ruggles-Brise (She built an extensive music collection of her own, which included the important William Dixon manuscript, the earliest source of bagpipe music from the British Isles, and the most extensive source of Border pipe music from the 18th century. This manuscript is slightly scorched; when she offered to buy it from its previous owner, Charles Macintosh of Inver, he refused to sell it to her, insisting she take it instead as a gift. When she demurred, he put it on the fire to force her to accept it. This, along with the rest of her personal collection, some 600 volumes, is now known as the Atholl Collection, and housed in the A.K. Bell Library in Perth. A catalogue of all the music in the collection is available.)
