Tunes for the Battle of Flodden

Post by Jack Campin »

I put together a bunch of Scottish tunes relating to the Battle of Flodden:

They're in ABC format - see http://abcnotation.com if you don't know what to do with it.

I may get round to including the stories behind them, but meanwhile this should be handy for anyone doing a commemoration.

I threw in a lot of different versions of The Flowers of the Forest, as that's an unusually variable tune (and most of the versions postdate the battle by a couple of centuries).
