For ever Fortune | partition

Scottish songs and dances in the 18th century


This partition contains the scores of all the pieces you will find on the CD “For ever Fortune” (Alpha 531), presenting a selection of songs and dances from the 18th century Scotland.

This programme is based on sources written or printed in Edinburgh or London throughout the 18th and early 19th centuries. The style of the melodies and of their accompaniment makes them easily adaptable for playing on any instruments, make it a perfect teaching material.

For the sake of coherence and elegance, a musical typography was created for this edition by Pierre Séchet, recalling the graphic aspect of scores printed in the 18th century. In addition, the typeface used is Rameau, designed by Sarah Lazarevic based on an engraved edition of a lyric work by J.P. Rameau.
