Musica Scotica is a series of scholarly editions of Early Scottish Music, published under the general editorship of Dr Kenneth Elliott. Volume IV contains five cantatas by a young member of the Scottish aristocracy doing the Grand Tour, composed in 1697-9 as a result of his visit to Rome, where he studied with Corelli and Pasquini. Amatory, sacred, festive and political texts are set in baroque style for Soprano, two violins (one with additional viola) and continuo, and are now published for the first time in a complete edition.
