Our Ancient National Airs: Scottish song collecting from the Enlightenment to the Romantic era
Research output: Books, editions or reports › Book › peer-review
One of the earliest documented Scottish song collectors to go 'into the field' to gather his specimens was Joseph Macdonald. Macdonald emigrated in 1760 and it fell to Patrick Macdonald to finish and publish his brother's collection. McAulay traces the history of Scottish song collecting over the ensuing 130 years.
