The source of Scottish song is the Scottish heart, and in fashioning song and story from the strings of the heart, the Scottish poet and musician find sources of endless possibility. To help us to laugh at ourselves in our daily tasks, to make us articulate in moments of emotion, to reveal to us the beauties of our countryside, are but a few of these endless sources.
To know something of these, is to know something of Scotland and in the songs which follow, we offer you just a glimpse, merely an introduction, and hope that you will seek for many more.
The Glasgow Phoenix Choir now in its 20th year, is a well established Scottish Choir, displaying the highest virtues of ensemble singing. In this new series of gramophone records they present the heritage of Scottish song, both sacred and secular, which links in one fellowship all who love Scotland and who have come to cherish her ideals and her hopes.
