Tune of the Day: O This Is No My Ain Lassie
Traditional Scottish tune, arranged for flute duet
The song “O This Is No My Ain Lassie” was written in 1795 by Scottish national poet Robert Burns, but the melody was taken from an earlier Jacobite rebellion song, titled “This Is No My Ain House”.
The present arrangement for three flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
