Ye Banks and Braes (Come O Thou Traveler Unknown)
“Ye Banks and Braes”, also known as “The Banks O’Doon” (a river in Scotland), is a poem written in 1791 by Robert Burns, who then set the lyrics to a Scottish air called “The Caledonian Hunt’s Delight”. Those lyrics tell the sad tale that was Burns’ inspiration for the poem. The tune has been nicely arranged for 8 bells and is accessible for Level 2 ringers. May be played as a 4iH duet, a trio, or a quartet. It is 47 measures in length and includes a repeat (the recording does not include the repeat). Key of C Major.
Note: A copy is needed for each ringer.
