Medium Printed Music sheet
Item Type Printed Collection
Subject Scottish Music, Strathspey or Schottische
Item Description Mackenzie Hay can be performed as either a strathspey or a schottische. Note how specific Skinner is with directions for playing this melody: in bar 2, some notes have double dots,which indicates they must be held even longer. There are also many instances of Skinner's own flat slurs, which indicate a specific way of using the bow on these notes. The accompaniment is so harmonically simple and 'unpianistic' that it may have been arranged by Skinner himself. You can hear him playing this melody by clicking on the audio link below.
