About this release

Did Haydn write Scottish songs? Yes, some 400 of them! In fact Haydn – as did also for instance Beethoven and Pleyel – wrote many of his arrangements of Scottish folk songs on commission. The publisher also approached some prominent poets like Robert Burns to write new texts for him.

Singers Lorna Anderson (soprano) and Jamie MacDougall (tenor) have together with the Haydn Trio Eisenstadt and a team of musicologists embarked on a huge project to record all Haydn Scottish songs. Last year the first CD was issued. Now we continue with a set of 4 CD’s covering 91 songs. They are all part of the first complete edition of these songs by Haydn.

Other information:
- The project sheds light on an interesting, hardly-known part of Haydn’s varied oeuvre.
- The booklet contains all texts in English with some explanation in German.
