"The Auld Hoose": The name of the 18th. century Scottish poet, Baroness Caroline Nairne, may not be generally well-known, largely because it was not deemed appropriate for an aristocratic lady to indulge in writing poetry and collecting folk melodies,but the popularity of her songs is second only to Robert Burns; "Charlie is my Darling" and "Will Ye no' Come Back Again" being among the best known. "The Auld Hoose" is a fond memory of her ancestral home. This setting is for solo soprano or tenor and chamber orchestra.
