Subject Scottish Music, Miller O'Hirn Preface
Item Description Skinner really looked forward to the establishment of an official society to advance the arts in Scotland. He felt very strongly that this would allow native practitioners the freedom to work and allow Scotland's arts to survive. He puts this message, and his delight that Scottish music was reaching England, across in the preface to his first large collection of Scottish music and song, The Miller o' Hirn Collection.
