1. Since all thy vows, false maid, are blown to air
Transcribed on returning home from a 3 months’ Australian concert tour, and finding a gift awaiting me: F. G. Scott’s copy of Busoni’s Von der Einheit der Musik, very kindly presented by the composer’s son George: for me a symbolic gift of a communion of minds. R.S.
2.Wha is that at my bower-door?
3.O were my love you lilac fair
4.Wee Willie Gray
5.Milkwort and bog-cotton
6.Crowdieknowe
Twenty-six years of devotion to a masterpiece of Mephistophelian balladry, worthy of Busoni’s Doktor Faust and linking the eldritch Scottish Borders with the European Faust legend. R.S. July 1989.
7.Ay waukin, O
Ay waukin, O = Ever waking, O - insomnia from love.
8.There’s news, lasses, news
