The Shepherd's Wife/The Stool of Repentance

The Shepherd's Wife
This set is part of the following collections:


Two old Scottish jigs. The first was originally a song air, and has been adapted for another couple of songs, including A Rosebud By My Early Walk by Burns.

The Stool of Repentance refers to a practice in Scottish churches where someone who had strayed from the path of righteousness was made to sit in shame at the front of the congregation.

This set and other tunes played at Scottish Sessions can be found in The Scottish Slow Session Volume 2, available from my Online Store.
