Musician's or Publisher's Notes
piece by eminent Scots composer James MacMillan is rich in highland flavor
appropriate to its Robert Burns text. Vocal
ornamental inflections are drawn from Scottish folk music and Gaelic Psalmody.
Where Cart rins rowin to the sea, My
daddie signed the Tocher-band
By mony a flow'r and
spreading tree, To gie the lad
that has the land,
There lives a lad, the lad for me, But
to my heart I'll add my hand,
He is the gallant Weaver. And
give it to the Weaver.
Oh had I wooers aught or nine, While
birds rejoice in leafy bowers;
They gied me rings and ribbons fine, While
bees delight in op'ning flowers;
And I was
feared my heart would tine, While
corns grows green in simmer showers
gied it to the Weaver. I
love my gallant Weaver.
