Various Artists: The Robert Burns Collection-The Songs
Genre: Folk & Traditional
Catalogue Number: LCOM 6040
"The songs of Robert Burns can rank with any in the world. As in all his verse, the reader will not find a discordant or jarring consonant or vowel, which is an indication of the musicality of the poet. The leider of Schubert or Wolfe may resemble the songs of Burns but even these magnificent creations cannot surpass the international appeal of the songs represented here. They were written by a man steeped in the history of his country, a man who listend to and absorbed the folklore, the traditional songs and melodies of his time, and through his genius made them immortal", Joe Campbell, 1995.
Sung by:- Kenneth McKellar,Moira Anderson, Peter Morrison, The Scottish Philharmonic Singers, Isobel Buchanan, Ossian, Alex Beaton, Dalriada, Helen McArthur and Jean Redpath .
