Tune of the Day: Scots Wha Hae Wi' Wallace Bled

Traditional Scottish tune, arranged for flute trio

This Scottish patriotic song has served for centuries as an unofficial national anthem of the country. While the lyrics were written by Robert Burns in 1793, the tune is an old traditional air originally known as “Hey Tuttie Tatie”. The same tune has been used as the basis for several other songs, such as “Fill Up Your Bumpers High” (1718) and “Bridekirk's Hunting”.

The present arrangement for three flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
