Gustav Holst - Seven Scottish Airs

This month is Kilted To Kick Cancer.  Hmm ... kilts.  What sort of classical music would you get from that?  As it turns out, quite a lot.  This month will see Sunday Classical selections highlighting the rich Scottish classical music tradition.

First up, Gustav Holst, who we've seen here before.

I was a bit surprised at just how much classical music about Scotland there is, including from guys like Haydn and Beethoven.  Stay tuned this month.

Interesting selection... and timely! :-)

After about the first 20 seconds I'm singing, "What shall we do with a drunken sailor..."

Always something to learn -- the only Holst i knew was "The Planets" .

Didn't know about the Scottish connection.

Good job.
