The Bonny Broom
And Other Scottish Ballads

This CD features beautiful, simple, and intimate Scottish
melodies of the 18th century.

Though the ballads on this recording are primarily concerned with eros,
many use rich imagery to convey the fundamental connection
the people had to the land and to nature in general.

Recorded September 17 & 18, 1999
St. Stephens Episcopal School Austin, TX
