The Skye Boat Song – Orchestra
“The Skye Boat Song” is a late 19th-century Scottish song recalling the journey of Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) from Benbecula to the Isle of Skye as he evaded capture by government troops after his defeat at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. A song of bitter loss and despair, which still manages to find a ray of hope in the fact that Charlie escaped and will “rise again”.
It is arranged here for an Orchestra with optional parts for Clarinet 3, Euphonium, and Piano (Chorded) – Not shown on the score.
The MP3 was recorded with NotePerformer 3.
