Subject Music, Scottish Fiddle music, Song
Item Description 'Song. W Carnie. "To ane far awa" by J. Scott Skinner arr[anged]: by Gavin Greig', in Skinner's hand, on pre-printed three-stave music paper. This appears to be Skinner's, rather than Greig's, arrangement. The melody in bars 1 and 3 is incorrectly notated: the first two notes should be dotted quavers followed by semi-quavers. Along the right-hand margin is written 'Please send a copy for Nellie to sing - '. There are a few dynamics, in pencil, and, at the bottom, 'To W[illiam] Carnie's Words'.
