O’ Gin I Were A Baron’s Heir - Words and music by Joseph William Holder (1765-1832). Holder was in fact English by birth and a graduate in Music of Oxford University. In this song the young man is admitting to his girl that he has nothing to offer her but his love, admitting that he has no riches or titles. We are led to expect that the girl will say she loves him, as he is expressing his feelings so beautifully. Also known as Lassie, Would Ye Lo'e Me.

The Nameless Lassie - Often mis-attributed to Aberdeenshire fiddler-composer William Marshall, this tune was composed by Alexander MacKenzie (b. Montrose, 1819-1857), principal violinist and leader of the orchestra at the Theatre Royal in Edinburgh while the sentimental lyrics are attributed to James Ballentine, a poet and stained-glass artist of Edinburgh (1806-1877).

There Grows A Bonnie Briar Bush - This popular Robert Burns song appears in The Scots Musical Museum, a series of six volumes published between 1787 and 1839 and is considered a variant of an older Jacobite song.

Will Ye No Come Back Again - This is a Scots poem by Carolina Oliphant (Lady Nairne, 1766-1845) written in the first half of the 19th century and set to a traditional Scottish folk tune. It is a quasi Jacobite song composed some time after the Jacobite Rising of 1745, which ended at the Battle of Culloden. Also known as Bonnie Charlie.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
