Scottish and Scots Gaelic Airs arranged in Sets

Titles are listed alphabetically in this section of the Sheet Music Catalogue with links to audio samples and sheet music previews, and where items can be purchased.

Two, three, or four titles have been arranged in sets, which are most suited to solo performance or when playing for dances. 

The term ‘waltz’ derives from the old German word walzen to roll, turn, or to glide. As a dance type, it was born in the suburbs of Vienna and in the alpine region of Austria. As early as the seventeenth century, waltzes were played in the ballrooms of the Hapsburg court. By the end of the eighteenth century, this old Austrian peasant dance had been accepted by high society throughout the continent, but was much slower to arrive here, only becoming fashionable during the Regency period. Initially, polite society was shocked by close proximity of the embracing dancers.

Today, a ‘waltz’ is both the dance type and the accompanying dance tune type, characterised by a step, slide, and step movement to music in 3/4 time with a strong accent on the first beat. Numerous variations of waltz have developed over the years, including many folk and several ballroom dances.
