Scottish Fiddling for Viola
Scottish Fiddling for Viola. Compiled and arranged by Anne Witt. Published by Mel Bay Publications.
From the preface:
"The forty-five tunes in this collection represent the vast repertoire of traditional Scottish fiddle music dating back to the 1700's. There is a long history of music shared between fiddle, bagpipe, and song. Many of these tunes are played by pipers. Some are well known songs. Included are laments, airs, marches, strathspeys, reels, and jigs. The music has been edited and arranged for viola along with guitar chords if desired for accompaniment. Laments and airs are particularly well suited to the viola's dark timbre. The tunes are presented in sets of three or four for solo performance."
