Time Travel with a Tablet? Musick for Allan Ramsay’s Collection¬†

 

With some excitement, yesterday, we opened this digital copy of one of Scotland’s earliest song-tune collections.¬† Allan Ramsay compiled a collection of song texts. Alexander Stuart compiled a tune-book to go with the words, in the mid-1720s. And here’s the digitized work, all the way from the University of South Carolina!

You can save the whole book to an iPad or tablet, and play the tunes out of it. What could be cooler than that?
