Island Spinning Song

| /
Donald Patriquin
Island Spinning Song is an arrangement of the traditional Scottish reel Alastair o' the Dun. The lyrics contain a chorus composed of highly rhythmic Gaelic nonsense syllables. Its companion piece, an arrangement of the slow, hauntingly beautiful Scottish melody chosen by ‘Robbie’ Burns to accompany Ae Fond Kiss (soon to be published by earthsongs), his tender poem of unrequited love, completes the Scottish Contrasts suite.
