Tartan Terrors image
A set of five amusing songs for either unison voices or a solo voice, with piano accompaniment, about the "Tartan Terrors". Words by Derek Roberts set to music by Tom Cunningham. Commissioned by the National Youth Choir of Scotland.
The five songs are:
The Wild Haggis
The Loch Ness Monster
Bogle Boogie
(A Bogle is a Scottish sprite that loves to play tricks on humans, especially children)
The Wee Gigelorum (an insect of Scottish folklore, believed to be the smallest creature)
The Kelpie (a shape-shifting water spirit that often appears as a horse)
"Never take a selfie with a kelpie,
This river horse just isn't man's best friend,
When a kelpie starts to smile
It is time to run a mile,
Or you'll come to a very sticky end!"

Total duration 10 minutes

Apart from the audio file below, for teaching use or as an accompaniment (if you don't have a pianist) you can find separate recordings of each song with a clarinet on the vocal line on Tom Cunningham's website. CLICK HERE
