Musica Scotica is a series of scholarly editions of early Scottish music and of historical studies in Scottish music, published under the general editorship of Dr Kenneth Elliott. Volume V in the Main Series contains part of a ‘lost repertory’ of Scots song, hidden since the seventeenth century in instrumental and often tablature arrangements for lute, cittern, and lyra-viol, now reconstructed and published for the first time. ?There are also examples of lute song, consort song and continuo song in a mixture of Scottish and international styles.
