  1. I’m looking for visual images for a song from Robert Edwards’ commonplace book, ‘Remember me my deir’. The ones you have transcribed are lovely – but don’t include that one? Does it come from a different volume?

    • Hi Kate. I haven’t looked at this manuscript for six years or so, and can’t remember details. You can find Remember Me, My Deir in Kenneth Elliott’s edition of Scots music for the Musica Britanica series – both words and music. And there are a few recordings of the song by various groups. It’s very beautiful.

  2. thank you! I’ve found a digitised copy of the song from 1666 on the National Library of Scotland’s website, too. Yes, it’s a lovely song.
