Murray McLachlan Live DVD recording from RNCM. Francis George Scott (1880-1958) is the outstanding Scottish composer of songs in the 20th Century In the same way that Liszt transcribed Schubert Lieder, Ronald Stevenson (b 1928) has transcribed a selection of Scott's songs. This is one of his most exuberant settings. A real drinking 'pub' song for Hogmany! Words by Robert Burns not so serious; 'There's news, lasses news, Gude news I hae to tell: There's a boatful' o'lads Come to our town to sell....'.
