Ye Banks and Braes O’ Bonnie Doon

Ye Banks and Braes O’ Bonnie Doon is a slow, sustained Scottish folk song. This setting by composer Percy Grainger is one of his most memorable folk song settings, and is now considered one of the cornerstones of band repertoire. Grainger’s original setting of this was done in 1901 for “men’s chorus and whistlers.” (Source: Band Music Notes)
