PROGRAM NOTES

qu

ir

The words that this lovely Scottish folk tune supports relate the true story of the overnight
escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie (Prince Charles Edward Stuart) to the Isle of Skye, off the
west coast of Scotland, after his blistering defeat at the 1746 Battle of Culloden.

v
s i

Speed bonnie boat,


like a bird on the wing,
Onward! The sailors cry;
Carry the lad thats born to be king
over the sea to Skye.

lU

e
a

Focusing on independent lines to achieve a rich tapestry of sound, this setting for younger
instrumentalists will flatter an ensemble of any size.

NOTES TO THE CONDUCTOR

P
L

The notes and rhythms themselves are not difficult to master in this arrangement, all being
safely within the parameters of this level. The challenge is to make real music here.

eg

This may be your bands first experience with a ballad, so start by stressing the basics: deep
breaths to carry complete phrases; holding notes to their full value; keen attention to the
subtle dynamic changes; an eagle eye on the conductor for tempo nuances.

Please note: Our band and orchestra music is now being collated by an automatic high-speed system.
The enclosed parts are now sorted by page count, rather than score order.
