About this release

‘For the lack of gold’, ’The lass of Locroyan’ and Rosslin castle’: these are just a few of the colourful titles on this album. They are among the 60 or so arrangements by Joseph Haydn and part of an amazing 400 folksongs from his pen.

They consist of Scottish, Welsh and Irish songs. In collaboration with (among others) Glasgow University and the Haydn Institut Köln, performers Lorna Anderson, Jamie MacDougall and the Haydn Trio Eisenstad are undertaking a unique project to record all of Haydn’s folksong arrangements.

This fourth volume is taken up by the arrangements of Scottish folksongs written for William Whyte. He was one of the three publishers for whom Haydn composed his folksong arrangements. – the first three volumes of the series being dedicated to songs ordered by one of the others, George Tomson.

Delightful material showing a different and rather unknown side of Haydn. Both being native Glaswegians the singers are ideally equipped to deal with the idiosyncrasies of the language.
