Encompassing traditional, classical, and popular music and placing them in their historical contexts, this all-embracing account of the history of music and musicians in Scotland stretches from the Stone Age to the present day. Adding vital information to the history of Scotland itself, it is copiously illustrated with examples of music and images of musicians, manuscripts, and instruments. Much more than a second edition to its award-winning predecessor, the text and illustrations have been substantially revised and extended to take account of new discoveries and research. Additional information is included on the reconstruction of the carnyx and of other archaeological finds; further exposure of the musician spies attached to the exiled Mary Queen of Scots; the use of number symbolism by Scottish composers, which includes a direct bearing on the significance of the Darien Scheme; discussion of the work of Cecil Coles, whose last composition was found on his body after his death in the World War I; and examinations of many more composers and topics.
