GUEST,Jim McLean Scottish melodies in Indian folk songs (24) RE: Scottish melodies in Indian folk songs 08 Jul 11


I was reading a letter sent to George Thomson from Robert Burns where he writes 'I enclose you a Musical curiosity - an East Indian air, which you would swear was a Scottish one .... I intend putting it into The Musical Museum. - Here follow the lines I intend for it'

Burns called the song The Auld Man's Winter Thought and it is in Johnson's Museum, #486. titled The Winter of Life. The tempo shifts from 3/4 to 2/4 and back again and is quite peculiar.
