Item Description Manuscript, in Gavin Greig's hand, of page 163 in Skinner's Harp and Claymore Collection. 'Sarona' is the old Greek name for the 'plain of Sharon', near Mt Carmel, in the middle east. It was the name of the house where the dedicatee, 'W. Ferrier, Broughty Ferry', lived. This is the final draft, the copy used by the printers when they set the music for publication. Afterwards, the publishers Bayley and Ferguson (London and Glasgow) returned the draft copy to Greig.
