Burns Revisited Volume 11

Burns Revisited is a project to rewrite the music to all of Robert Burns songs and set much of his verse to music that has never had music before.

Burns is one of the greatest lyricists of all time but he wasn’t a composer. He was a song collector and for this we have to be grateful for had he not notated all the old tunes he heard on his travels, they could have been lost to antiquity. Although he collected a great deal of old tunes, there obviously wasn’t enough to cater for his prodigious output of verse. This would explain why we have a situation where several of his songs share the same tune. I have set out to redress this state of affairs and when the project is finished all of his song lyrics will have a brand new tune and many will have more than one and I feel that’s the way it should be. This is phase one and so far 363 new tunes have been written. By the time the project is complete, the full total is expected to exceed 500.
