Tune of the Day: Draw the Sword Scotland

arranged for two flutes

Written around 1830, “Draw the Sword Scotland” is a stirring call to arms, calling on the sons of Scotland to rise up in defense of their country.

Draw the Sword Scotland! Scotland! Scotland!
Over moor and mountain hath passed the war sign,
The pibroch is pealing! pealing! pealing!
Who heeds not the summons is nae son o' thine.

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