This is a perfect choice for anyone with an affinity for the work of Robert Burns, the most successful, popular and revered of all the Scottish poets. This volume spans his entire song-writing and song collecting years and contains forty warm and poetic songs. Arranged for melody line, guitar chords and lyrics but aimed particularly at vocalists, it is a practical, singable edition and includes Scots, Wha Hae, The Gloomy Night, Lord Gregory, Ae Fond Kiss and Auld Lang Syne.

Folk singer, Burns afficionado.
It has new material for me.
Material could be more widely ranging as Burns wrote many songs covering many subjects.

Excellent selection of songs, combining classics with some splendid new ones which I had never met, such as " What can a lassie do with an auld man ?" I shall certainly include some in next year's Burns Supper. Each comes with a very helpful short paragraph giving background information about the song.
Fortunately my pianist wife is good enough to busk an accompaniment from the chords provided, but other users might find a piano accompaniment helpful.

This is one of those books which is invaluable if, like me, you know you know the songs but can't for the life of you recall them sometimes! It has all the well-known songs to Burns' poems in melody plus basic chords - enough to allow the talented amateur to provide accompaniments.
Service from Musicroom.com was characteristically prompt and e-mails kept me up to date with progress of my order. First rate! Anonymous
